Milton Road campaigning

We had a successful leafleting event at the Milton Road Co-op near Arbury Road on Sunday to promote our proposals for a 'Do-optimum' approach.

We hope to do further events along Milton Road and at the Science Park. Please get in touch if you would like to help at future events. Cyclescape 3024


Hire bikes coming to Cambridge

Ofo, China's largest bike-sharing operator, are planning to bring hundreds of bright yellow hire bikes to Cambridge. Will they be a welcome addition to Cambridge, or an ill-conceived failure, tarring the concept of bike-sharing in Cambridge in future? Join the discussion on Cyclescape 2952.


Cam Lakes Project

After a period of quiet, there is movement again on plans to develop the area around the Cherry Hinton chalk pits. The developer is holding a public exhibition at the Holiday Inn Express, Coldhams Business Park, 10am-4pm on Saturday 25 February to reveal the current plans. Cyclescape 1485
