Let’s deal with two issues first – before we get into the nitty gritty of this report.
I have to admit l am a cyclist – so there is a bit of bias – and also, when it comes to discussing Bath’s new bike hangars, l keep calling them racks!
Apologies for both, as l have managed to have a chat with the B&NES councillor responsible for overseeing the appearance of such bike hangars on Bath streets and also for encouraging more of us to take to the saddle.
She’s Cllr Sarah Warren – the B&NES cabinet member for the Climate Emergency and Sustainable Travel.
These new bike lock-ups are aimed at those who have nowhere safe to secure their bikes. It’s a trial provision that will be reviewed but, there are residents who aren’t too happy to have these objects in their streets.
So let’s discuss the matter shall we?
