Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Cambridge Cycling Campaign was formed in 1995 to provide a voice for cyclists in Cambridge and the surrounding villages. We aren't a cycling club, but an organisation of volunteers campaigning for the rights of cyclists and promoting cycling in and around Cambridge. We lobby for better and more convenient conditions for cycling, safer roads, and more people on bikes. It is now a charity, registered number 1138098. More information at https://www.camcycle.org.uk

  • Herbert St - bollards after roadworks

    Sam // 1 thread

    The bollards at the bottom of Herbert St haven't been replaced after the electricity cable was laid last week.

    Rather than directly replacing the bollard slalom that existed beforehand, the bollard specialists might have suggestions on what the layout should be here which camcycle can suggest as for the replacement...

  • Sawston/Babraham cycleway closure 2022-09-15 for 3.5 weeks

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    We've received a note from a concerned resident:

    Not too sure if this has been informed of this but the Sawston to Babraham CyclePath is planned to be closed by a commercial property developer on 15th Sept. Don't know when it'll reopen. All cyclists will be forced to cycle on the main road that is a pretty hairy affair at the best of times. They did this already for 2 days back in August without any consultation. The cyclepath has become very popular in the last few years as many employees from the Babraham and Granta Parks use it for commuting. Also it's relatively new so can't believe that private developers are allowed to shut it basically to use it as a free convenient storage area.

  • Unlit post hazard

    Created by Tim Steele // 0 threads

    Where the path splits there is a marker post that is completely invisible at night. It should be fitted with reflective material or removed.

  • Dangerous to cross Milton Road diagonally at Toucan crossing

    Created by Matt H // 1 thread

    As the bridleway crosses Milton Road, it swaps sides of the busway, so most pedestrians and cyclists want to cross diagonally. However the toucan crossing only protects people crossing Milton Road. It doesn't stop busway traffic.

    This is confusing and dangerous. When the road traffic stops at red lights, and the Toucan crossing turns green, it feels very safe to cross the busway. Yet buses can come from three directions (busway west, busway east, Milton Road south) at speeds of 30 mph.

    Cyclists in particular are tempted to cross diagonally from north west to south east. Last week I saw a near accident.

  • Long wait to cross Busway / Station Road, Histon

    Created by Matt H // 1 thread

    Pedestrians and cyclists at the toucan crossing where the busway meets Station Road, Histon have to wait a long time for the lights to change even if there is zero bus or road traffic.

    This seems inconsistent with Highway Code rule H1 about the hierarchy of road users. Pedestrians should have priority over non-existent buses!
