2 of the 5 candidates (40%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Susannah KERR
(Liberal Democrat)

I was born and grew up in Cambridge, and have been cycling its streets for the majority of these years. In this time it has become a much better city to cycle around, but I think that we can all recognise that there are many areas for improvement. I look forward to speaking with more residents from East Chesterton so that we can work together to improve conditions for cyclists, cycling behaviour and the safety of all road users.

Peter BURKINSHAW
(UK Independence Party)

Provision for cyclists is already adequate. Please remember that motorists are the people who pay to use the roads whereas cyclists are "freeloaders". They are entitled to use the roads but not disproportionately.

If everyone cycled, as you suggest, there would be no roads to ride on.
