Cambridge Cycling Campaign is pleased to see Cambridge featured by Streetfilms as Britain’s Cycling Capital. The video highlights the benefits of cycling, low speed limits, filtered permeability, and the core traffic scheme to transforming a city into a place where people use the bicycle. The video was created by Clarence Eckerson Jr, the director of Streetfilms, during a visit to Cambridge in May earlier this year. Of his time in Cambridge Eckerson says ‘I just really loved the energy of Cambridge. It was remarkable to just see so many people riding bikes. And kids!’
