Cycle map cover

The long-awaited Cambridge Cycle Route Map was launched at the University of Cambridge’s Freshers’ Fair at the start of October, when copies were given to thousands of new students.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to the many Campaign members who have given so much time to this project, helping to plan the map and survey the city. Thanks are also due to the County Council, who funded the map, and to Adhoc Publishing, who did the colourful design and printing.

The Council distributed all 10,000 copies of the map within a month, and so it is preparing for a second print run already.

Campaign members who get the printed Newsletter will find the map inserted with this issue. Members who read the web version are welcome to collect a map from our Saturday stall, or ask us to post you a copy. Non-members are welcome to send us a stamped addressed envelope for a copy (while stocks last!)
