Still on, despite a bit of light snow – not as much as was expected.
Cycling carries on in Cambridge whatever the weather!

On Saturday 23rd March (with a more leisurely ride on Sunday 24th) we welcome the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain, campaigners for the best of Dutch and Danish cycling infrastructure approaches, to an Infrastructure Safari to see the best and worst of cycle infrastructure in our fair city, and the issues we face in local campaigning. All welcome.
