Tuesday 16 June marked 20 years to the day since the first meeting of Cambridge Cycling Campaign.
To celebrate we took a leisurely ride around Cambridge, taking in some of the Campaign’s successes over the years, including the lifting of the daytime cycling ban in central Cambridge, Riverside Bridge, cycle contraflows and the Gonville Place toucan redesign. David Earl, one of the founding members of the Campaign, said a few words to all who had gathered in Market Square to take part, and then we were off, cycling along in the summer sun.
Over 30 people attended, the youngest (carried) rider was four, the oldest was … older than that. We finished the ride at the Mill Pond with a picnic and home-baked cake with 20th anniversary candles. [See previous articles for more on 20 years of the Campaign.]
