Taken through the dirty window of the Carter Bridge, the route of the Chisholm Trail, but I don’t think the current works are anything to do with that. User timbo reports: The works there are for the new carriage wash, to take 12-car t ... [more]

Steep footbridge with wheeling channel for bikes.

Narrow and blind - the path under the railway bridge on Ditton Meadows. This is acceptable as a "temporary" fix, but a permanent solution is needed to give acceptable width and sight lines.

See http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2016/08/pleasant-circular-route-round-cambridge.html for a video of riding around a pleasant little ride around Cambridge on good infra, not so good infra, and quiet roads. Just enjoy!

Track parts delivered to the left hand track here, presumably getting ready for the new Science Park station.

It looks like some curved bits of track have been delivered to the left hand track - presumably in advance of works at the forthcoming Science Park station. They weren't there in 2012 as photo #37610 shows.

The path on Ditton Meadows is already heavily used at times.

See clip at http://youtu.be/BYQOzBEafuM We had the fun and joy of the winter raised strip replacement on this wooden bridge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xniOGCp7DY Then it was removed after considerable complaints. http://www.yo ... [more]

Access to the "Great Kneighton Cyclebahn" near Trumpington Meadows. Barratt Homes sales agent recommended using the guided bus to the railway station or cycling the car route (Trumpington Road, Long Road), apparently unaware of the 2 1/4 mi ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/2Zq-rPOPwq8 After the new strips have been removed. So much easier to ride over without the really nasty vibration that left my forearms aching in just 15 seconds of riding. Several people have said that the f ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/_Wj2ezHsp2Y A second clip about this after it's had time to bed in. It is awful. I felt great pain after finishing riding along the bridge in my forearms. I can't think what this would be like to ride regu ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/3IwWqIP39tM The bridge under the Stourbridge Common railway bridge has been quite slippy for a while. So it's having it's slip-stop surface replaced. Here's a good before and after clip while it's been hal ... [more]

Some welcome new cycle parking at Cambridge Railway Station

Underpath on Milton Road with railway track bridge.

Despite quite long anti-pedestrian surfacing this doesn't stop some determined people using this rail crossing of the river as a short cut.

The bridge by the railway station, also called Carter Bridge.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG3filiT83o As you can see this is not a very friendly environment. Notice cars pulling across me at the last moment. I'm a confident rider, if you are anything else, I can't see you riding her ... [more]
