Meetings & events

Welcome to our list of forthcoming meetings and events. This page is currently undergoing improvement so to keep up-to-date with the latest Camcycle events, we recommend you also follow our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Camcycle rides

Come and cycle with Camcycle – we love to meet new people and share good cycle routes around the city.

Camcycle’s annual Reach Ride

Our most popular ride of the year is held annually on the May Bank Holiday weekend. Sadly it has had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. We hope to be able to gather again in 2022. You can read more about the event on our Reach Ride webpage.

Camcycle AGM

Our last AGM was held on Saturday 23 January with guest speaker Melissa Bruntlett. Find out more about the AGM and watch footage of the event on our blog.

Camcycle monthly meetings 2021

All are welcome to the Campaign’s monthly meeting. Usually these are held at the Friends Meeting House, Jesus Lane on the first Tuesday of each month. However, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, from April 2020 we have been holding meetings online. Meetings start at 7pm on the Camcycle facebook page and are followed by a social get-together on Jitsi Meet. The video from the Facebook meeting is uploaded to the Camcycle YouTube channel and our blog after the meeting.

Tuesday 5 October: Playing Out
The Playing Out scheme lets parents and residents create their own temporary play street, by closing the road to through-traffic for an hour or two, giving children the freedom to use the space outside their own front door. Local lead Julia Sang and Cambridgeshire County Council Youth & Community Coordinator Paul Connelly will talk about how this is working in our area. Watch live on our Facebook channel from 7pm.

Camcycle socials

Our social events are an ideal way to meet other members and supporters and to talk to Camcycle staff and volunteers. Come along and find out more about what we do and how you can get involved or simply enjoy a chat – we won’t just talk about cycling!

Thursday volunteer socials on Jitsi

Our spring social on 10 March, 2020, was the last meeting we were able to have in person. The Camcycle community is extremely important to us, so while we are physically distanced we are continuing to meet socially on Jitsi. Contact us to find out more.
