Walking and Cycling are not the same

Yet again in a BANES document, this time the consultation on the air quality plan, walking and cycling are treated as being the same with reference to walking and cycling strategies and routes as though the requirements were the same for both.

They are not.

Pedestrians need different provision and signage. They often need protection from irresponsible cyclists using, often illegally, the same space.

The impact on Bath of encouraging more cyclists in the city centre is different and we would argue worse, than encouraging more pedestrians.
