    It's not surprising really - not the most forward thinking policy is it? Reducing cycle lanes?

    Via Twitter Owain George is not getting much love.

    @climbingsteph says: Not Owain George that's for sure! He is anti cyclist. Bristol is England's first cycling city, please don't vote for him.

    @pajone says: Not Owain George who believes that 'cars are the preferred means of transport'. How out of touch for Bristol.
