Hester Wells and I spent a sunny Sunday afternoon with the Camcycle stall at the Histon and Impington Feast. It was a vibrant event with a fun fair, street food stalls and local performers to entertain visitors. Many feast-goers stopped by to discuss our latest campaigns.
#AbsoluteBollards was popular; we were told that the villages suffer from a few particularly difficult chicanes. Progress on ‘Do Optimum’ for Milton Road was also of interest, with the eventual outcome of City Deal (now Greater Cambridge Partnership) work there having a huge impact on any scheme subsequently proposed for Histon Road.
We’re looking for volunteers to help with similar events throughout the summer and autumn. Please get in touch if you can help out. You don’t need to be an expert in cycling issues, just positive about cycling and the work that Camcycle does. To keep up-to-date with upcoming events please see Cyclescape 253.
