Getting from the station out to Hills Road is a useful little link but with some perculiarities.

First there is a bizarre side cyclepath for about 40 yards just on the edge of the station roundabout. This is round the rising bollard section of road and does go both ways. I guess it might be useful to get past a bus waiting for the bollards to retreat or if there's something else blocking the road. I wouldn't go near it unless dire circumstances prevail. By using it you lose right of way in a few dozen yeards.

Then it's through the new station bus station, er, if that's a phrase. Because this is limited traffic place it does seem a more pleasant environment than the normal city road. And the width of the road suggests that they'll be enough space for buse drivers to manoeuvre around people cycling.

At the end of that it's straight on to get on the south Cambridge Guided Busway cyclepath. This goes all the way to Trumpington Park and Ride with a spur to Addenbrookes hospital. However, it's not in great use. See radwagon.co.uk/2012/05/south-cambridge-guided-busway-cyclepath.html for some ideas about that.

But it's right towards Hills Road. Currently still through a building site. At the end of this link road there are limited options. Turning left is hte main option. Over Hills Road railway bridge and onto south Cambridge. Alternatively, push the bike across the pedestrian crossing to the right of these lights. That gets to the Brooklands Avenue shared path towards Trumpington Road and the Coe Fen. For how that goes look at radwagon.co.uk/2012/06/wimpole-folly-and-three-cams.html for a high speed guide.
