LAST WEEKEND SAW A WARM AND SUNNY VISIT TO THE CITY OF CAMBRIDGE FOR THE CYCLING EMBASSY OF GREAT BRITAIN‘S AGM.
NATURALLY, THE EVENT INCLUDED SOME CYCLING AROUND LOOKING AT STUFF AND A BIG THANK YOU MUST GO TO THE
CAMBRIDGE CYCLING CAMPAIGN FOR BEING WONDERFUL HOSTS.
I’ll blog some thoughts over this week’s and next week’s post because there is a lot to cover.
My health warning is that I saw the city on a weekend and of course weekday highway conditions are usually different.
I would love to have a quarter of what is going on in Cambridge in my area and so people throwing stones in glass houses would be a legitimate repost! You may also wish to read the view of a former Cambridge (and now Netherlands) resident, David Hembrow, on far wider issues than I will cover, but
the high levels of cycling in the city is not wholly tied to the infrastructure, but to demographics.
However, where stuff is built, people clearly want to use it!
So anyway; this week I will show some of the big interventions and big roads.
