Over the last few months we have been working hard on producing a Cambridge city centre cycling map showing where and when you can and can’t cycle. This has now been published.

Many people don’t understand the rules about where you can and can’t now cycle in the City Centre

Some people just blatantly ignore the rules in the city centre. But many others simply don’t understand what the rules are – and therefore often just follow what the offenders do. It hasn’t helped that the police don’t always understand the rules! So as part of our initiative to promote responsible and legal cycling, the map offers definitive information to clarify to users and enforcers alike what actually is and isn’t allowed.

Members should have received a copy of the map with our AGM announcement letter. If you didn’t, or if you would like some more copies, please just ask us.

Councillors will be receiving copies from us in the post.

Of course it can only inform people if they get to see it. We are currently in the process of distributing the map to Cambridge University students and making arrangements for it to be delivered to all households in Cambridge. This has meant a big print run: 60,000 copies. We would like to say thank you to the County Council for agreeing to print it for us.
