Bristol bike routes filmed for website

Bike users can upload their own videos and photos

A Bristol cycling initiative is helping people get pedalling by offering videos of bike-friendly routes in the city.

If you're planning a trip in or around Bristol, you can check out footage of journeys on the Better By Bike website.

Currently there are about 10 videos - filmed using a tiny camera mounted on a cycle helmet - with plans for more, including those uploaded by cyclists.

And if the journey you need has not been filmed, you can still research it using a cycle route planner.

The facility on the Transport Direct website lets you search for the quietest, quickest or most recreational route from A to B.

Latest video routes to be added to the Better By Bike site include:

New cycle path for city shoppers
15 Dec 10 |  Nature & Outdoors
New bike route for balloon fiesta
29 Jul 10 |  Things to do
New off-road path for cycle city
15 Mar 09 |  Bristol
