People of Bath: do you want secure bike parking?

Even if you have to pay for it? Survey aims to poll opinion...

Have you ever thought about cycling into town but been put off by the thought of carrying a heavy lock or, worse still, having to walk home after some light fingered lag makes off with your pride and joy? That's one of the questions Tomas Jenkins of Somer Valley CC is asking about's home town of Bath, and he'd like to find out how many people would be interested in secure, manned cycle parking in the city.

If you live in Bath, or could reasonably cycle there (we'll leave you to be the judge of what's reasonable), or you might visit with your bike, then take a couple of minutes to go to the survey and have your say. Personally there's a lot of cycling infrastructure we'd like to see in Bath to make it a more pleasant place to cycle, top amongst them being an East/West prioritised and segregated route that links up all the bits on the flat with the Bristol/Bath and Two Tunnels paths. Hope springs eternal, eh. But some decent bike parking would be nice too.

Deadline for your submissions is midnight on Weds (22 Dec) so get checking those boxes and we'll let you know the results once the survey is over...
