St Ivo’s Way or Route 51?

This article was published in 2011, in Newsletter 97.

Cambridge’s newest off-road cycle route is now available and needs a name before it ends up being called the Busway cycleway.

There were all sorts of suggestions in the last Newsletter but none really appealed either to the Campaign’s committee or the July monthly meeting. Here is a selection of the more acceptable ones – we didn’t feel we wanted a name that referred to shortcomings that we hope are now fixed or harked back to the history of the project – and a few new suggestions. Views please!

  • St Ivo’s Way
  • Szeged Way
  • NCR 51
  • Route 51
  • Northern Cycleway
