Bike Bristol

Driving home yesterday up Gloucester Road, I had a strange experience. At 5.30 in the middle of the rush hour, I found mine the only car on the short stretch of road between Zetland Road and the old swimming baths.

Not the only vehicle, I hasten to add, as I was surrounded by bicycles.

I wasn't aware that there was a cycle protest on. But there were about 30 cyclists heading my way up the road.

It was a strange but rather pleasant experience as I got a glimpse of what Bristol might become as it moves towards its status of cycling city.

Maybe it will look more like Amsterdam.
