Campaigning



The Campaign’s primary focus is to work for a better cycling environment in and around the Cambridge area, in order both to increase the amount of cycling and to make it safer and more pleasurable. Much of this work is carried out by ordinary members as well as staff and the Board of Trustees. The following indicates the variety of areas in which we work.

Current key campaigns

Spaces to Breathe We’re calling on our decision-makers to take urgent steps to ensure we have safe networks and infrastructure for walking and cycling so that people can make essential journeys and get their vital exercise as safely as possible now and when our city reopens following the COVID-19 pandemic. Sign our open letter and tell us where you need safer spaces to breathe, walk and cycle.
City Deal The City Deal will transform Cambridge’s transport infrastructure. We will scrutinize proposals for all the City Deal projects
Chisholm Trail The Chisholm Trail is our proposal for a premier route running north to south, following much of the railway line.
Smarter Cambridge Transport We are involved in the Smarter Cambridge Transport (formerly Better City Deal) campaign for sustainable transport infrastructure in Cambridge and south Cambridgeshire, including measures for intelligent traffic management and public transport, as well as cycling.
