Cambridge is widely renowned as one of the UK’s major cycling cities. The network of cycle paths both in and around the city centre help to keep cyclists safe and reduce congestion on our busy roads.
In recent years the number of people cycling to work has grown enormously and increasing numbers of people are cycling in from the surrounding towns and villages. We would like to expand the current cycle path network to encourage this trend while keeping cyclists and other road users safe.

With this in mind, plans have been developed to provide a cycle link between Bar Hill, Dry Drayton, Madingley and the city centre. The majority of this route lies on land owned by Trinity College who have generously granted permission for this use. We would now like to encourage the remaining land owners to join Trinity in support of this route. We ask you to help us in this venture by signing our petition.

Cambridgeshire County council
South Cambridgeshire District Council
Cambridge City Council
Cambridge past present and Future
Cambridge Cycling Campaign
We have been informed that some funding will be available for this cycle path. Once the legal agreements are signed we can approach funders with an assured route.
