About BACC

West Quay in the sunshine

Bridgwater Area Cycling Campaign (BACC) is a local group working together to promote better transport routes for pedestrians, bicycle riders and other vulnerable road users. If more people cycle and walk, there will be fewer cars trying to move around the area. It’s a win-win!

Our aims

Safety
We will work with our partners to create a safer environment that all people can enjoy. We want to remove the fear of the road.

Communication
We will raise awareness of our work through a range of media and build good relationships in our community.

Infrastructure
Through local knowledge and audit information we will influence improvements to new and existing routes, mapping and signage.

Behavioural Change
We will promote the benefits of physical activity. Walking and cycling is healthy and should be encouraged.

  • Somerset County Council
