George Ferguson was the first of Bristol’s mayoral candidates to answer our questions on cycling, now a more controversial candidate has given us his views on the subject.

Making the journey safer
You normally travel to work by your chosen route. This may involve cycling down side roads. General advice is to stick to the main roads which have been gritted. This may not always be the case, if a road is particularly slushy. Also, if you hit a slope or an icy patch, don’t be afraid to get off and walk.
These statistics come from information collected through a survey carried out on the Better by Bike website. 1016 responses were received (plus 3 responses received/collected separately). This is a self-selecting sample, albeit slightly larger in size than those used in national opinion polls.
