Another barrier to cycling removed in just seven days
One Friday new chicane barriers were installed without warning on the cycleway between Warren Road and Eastfield in East Chesterton. The next Friday, they were removed again. What a waste of time and money!
Thanks to everyone who helped us achieve such a fast result on this campaign and to those at Cambridgeshire County Council who arranged their removal. We need to ensure that knowledge and application of LTN 1/20 is embedded at every level of each local authority or else efforts will be continually stymied by obstructive barriers and other features that exclude families and disabled cyclists.

2022 election campaign expands to Peterborough
Local elections took place on 5 May for Cambridge City Council, Peterborough City Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council and Huntingdonshire District Council. Working with regional groups, we were able to extend our annual election survey to cover all four elections, asking candidates questions on cycling and transport. This helps raise awareness of the importance of active travel and encourages residents to Vote Bike! Thanks to all who helped and participated.
