Do you know anyone who regularly drives into Cambridge from the West? If so, please spread the word about the cycle-lockers at the new Madingley Road Park-&-Ride site.
The idea is that you arrive at the site, leave your car, get your bike from your locker (only you and the council have a key) and cycle to your destination. Amongst the many advantages over the bus service:
- You don’t have to wait for the next bus to arrive.
- It’s more convenient – you don’t have to worry about whether there’s a bus route close to your destination.
- It’s cheaper than the bus. (Currently, it’s free! A deposit for the key is required.)
- You won’t get stuck sitting in traffic jams.
For those who live too far a way to cycle in regularly, it’s an ideal solution.
There are now only 5 lockers left (as of 17th September). To book one, telephone 463258.
