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

  • Potential conflict between Perne Rd and Tiverton Way .

    Created by cpax // 1 thread

     Like many other cyclists the majority being school pupils I have used the road between Perne Road and Tiverton Way as a way to avoid the traffic on Birdwood Road , however recently the work has begun to convert the bungalow and  often with builders vehicles blocking the cycle path on Perne Road . Today I encountered a group of people gathered ( deep in discussion ) in the road adjacent to the empty site which lies closer to Tiverton Way and on hearing my cycle bell seemed reluctant to move . I am concerned that this could be a site for future conflict .

  • 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 // 2 threads

    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.
