Cycle rides

If you’re looking for sociable and non-competitive cycle rides in the countryside around Cambridge, why not go for a ride with CTC Cambridge? We know all the nicest routes! We offer up to seven rides a week with a variety of speeds and distances, and non-CTC members are welcome to come and try us out. All rides are graded to give an indication of speed and distance so you should be able to find a day, speed and distance which suits you. If you’re unsure, our Saturday morning leisurely rides are a good way to start. See our calendar of rides at www.ctc-cambridge.org.uk.

City and County Council committees

Campaign members may be interested to attend Planning Committee and Area Committee meetings, which often include cycling and walking issues.

Joint Development Control Committee meetings, which determine the Planning Applications relating to the major housing development proposals for the Cambridge sub-region, are also open to the public. Details of venue and agenda are available about a week beforehand at www.cambridge.gov.uk/democracy/
