Madingley Road Park-&-Cycle

This article was published in 1996, in Newsletter 8.

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.
