Cycling in Cambridge

Cambridge has the highest levels of cycling in the UK, with about 25% of commuter journeys and an estimated 20% of journeys in general.

Cambridge was awarded Cycling Demonstration Town status in 2008 and that led to £5 million investment in cycling over a 3 year period.

There are many good quality facilities for cyclists and walkers, e.g. the many specialised bridges which create shortcuts to many areas. But there are also many problems remaining, and a legacy of car-orientated streets.

The main group campaigning for cycling in the area is Cambridge Cycling Campaign, the largest group outside London.

Two of their members are the creators of CycleStreets, and the system is based on the journey planner and photomap which was launched in June 2006 on Cambridge Cycling Campaign's website.

CTC Cambridge organize regular rides in the area.
