We have another packed newsletter featuring the current and ongoing issues for cycling in and around Cambridge.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership (formerly City Deal) is launching 12 Greenways routes of new and upgraded walking and cycling connections between Cambridge and the surrounding villages.

Cambridge Science Park is starting to consult and engage on upgrading the development, including its transport infrastructure.

Milton Road and the Chisholm Trail are ongoing issues, and problems around cycle parking and cycleway bollards continue to affect people cycling across the area.

With so much going on our volunteers are stretched, which limits what we can achieve even as there are many opportunities to improve and enable cycling.

If you are affected by an issue or can add information please contribute on Cyclescape. If no-one comments on an issue we don’t know if there is support for changes.

We can always use people who can write to summarise the results of Cyclescape discussion for consultation and planning application responses.

For stall events we can use more volunteers for an hour or so promoting cycling and the Campaign: a great opportunity for people who like to be out and about and meeting people. We would always pair new volunteers with experienced ones at events.

Even if you don’t feel you can contribute time, I’d like to thank you, our members, for your continued support: Camcycle would not exist without all of you.
