I and my family cycle for pleasure. No to your second question - because I my children are now adults.

There's insufficient road space and the 30 mph limit should be lowered to 20 mph in villages. South Cambs should use S106 monies for cycling improvements to encourage rural cycling. I'm lobbying for City Deal money for rural cycle routes to link with the proposed Cross City Cycling Projects.

# Question 3

Which aspects of current City Deal proposals do you support, and what additional measures which have not been officially proposed do you think should be explored?

We need to separate cycling from pedestrians as well as motorised traffic. Given the City road space this needs to take communities with it. The Abbey/Chesterton Bridge shows what can be achieved it you consult, consult, consult with all stakeholders.

# Question 4

Which junctions in your area need to be improved to increase safety for people cycling, and how what can be done to fix them?

In my experience - The Coldhams Lane roundabout at Sainsburys. The junction at the Robin Hood Cherry Hinton. The Newmarket Road roundabout at Teversham for those joining from Airport Way.

# Question 5

What measures would you support to boost cycle commuting into Cambridge? For instance, the City Deal Greenways proposal, reuse of old railway alignments, or new bridges over main roads?

All of these plus upgrading of existing shared paths - for example along Cambridge Road and a safe route through Fulbourn village to the Wilbrahams.

A scheme on the same principles as Hills Road. Separate cyclists from pedestrians, other traffic but retain the bus lanes. Good safe cycling access to the retail parks and separate designation within them (including the Beehive Centre).

Camcycle is a non-partisan body. All candidates are given an equal opportunity to submit their views. Information published by Camcycle (Cambridge Cycling Campaign), The Bike Depot, 140 Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0DL.
