Update – 15th December

Thank you

Thank you to our supporters and match funders for their generosity during the Christmas Challenge through which we raised £5,109 to help with our work in 2018.

Thanks also to our members, volunteers and trustees who have worked so hard in 2017 for more, better and safer cycling. We released our first ever Annual Report at our AGM last week: it is packed with information about our achievements over the last year and also sets out our plans for next year. You can download a copy from our website. Perhaps you will see something in there that will inspire you to get involved next year. If so, please get in touch.

Keeping Cambridge Special

Cambridge Past Present and Future are holding a free workshop 'Keeping Cambridge Special' on Saturday 13 January at 9 am.

Participants are asked to share their ideas for how Cambridge can address the challenge of having more people moving around the city, in ways that enhance the quality of life and preserve the city’s heritage.

This workshop will include four thought-provoking presentations covering issues such as Cambridge’s green spaces, sharing spaces, improving interchanges and street design:

  • Sharing spaces: Robert Myers (landscape designer)
  • Green spaces: Joel Carré (Cambridge City Council)
  • Movement: Charlene Rohr (RAND Europe)
  • Design: Kieran Perkins (5th Studio)

There will be an opportunity to give your views and for discussion with decision-makers; this will be led by Councillor Lewis Herbert (Leader of Cambridge City Council).

Find out more and book online through Cambridge Past Present and Future.

Do your children cycle to school?

The Perse School headmaster has begun a programme to punish children who cycle to school while wearing their normal clothing, instead forcing them to don a 'high-viz' jacket and helmet. He is also encouraging other schools to adopt his policies.

We would like to hear from parents whose children are or may be affected by these types of policies. Please get in touch with contact@camcycle.org.uk or join the conversation on Cyclescape 3722.

newslettersCamcycle newsletter delays

We're sorry that our December/January newsletter has been delayed. We are hoping this will be in your letter boxes and inboxes before the end of the year. Unfortunately, we are still short of volunteers to help produce the newsletter and this may lead to more delays with future editions. Read more to find out more about the help we need.
