We need more people to cycle
THE RAC reports that the poorest 10 per cent of car-owning households are spending more than 25 per cent of their disposable income on buying and running a vehicle.
The result is "transport poverty". Transport has become the biggest area of household expenditure.
There is a simple, inexpensive, easily-to-hand solution which can help many people: ride a bicycle. It's cheap, quick, keeps you healthy and saves you money.
We need to be doing more to encourage people to cycle. In Copenhagen, around a third of people get to work every day by bike.

We need to provide more cycle lanes and encourage more people to cycle whenever we can.
Of course, cycling is not the answer for everyone – some people just need to go long distances to out-of-the-way places, and can't use public transport.
But the council can and should do everything it can to promote cycling and walking in Bristol, and help people in these tougher economic times.
George, we need more routes like the great Bristol to Bath cycle path all over the city.
