Roads were not built for carsFrom advocacy to art, via science, sport and history, we’ll be bringing the most interesting minds in cycling to Bristol for a programme of free talks, and adding some local contributors along the way.


Last year we had talks from Carlton Reid, speaking about his radical history of transport Roads Were Not Built For Cars, Jack Thurston, author of “Lost Lanes” and host of Resonance FM’s “The Bike Show” presenting a history of cycle touring, and Rachel Aldred from the University of Westminster chairing a discussion on cycling inequalities.
