Event Details

This ride is cancelled due to the forecast continuous rain in Cambridge for 12 October.

We're limiting the registration to the first 6 who sign up on EventBrite (plus 5 places already issued) to ensure that the train isn't overcrowded with bicycles. Others (unticketed) are welcome to join us at Cambridge station at 10:00 am, provided that they don't use the 9:04 train from Kings Cross.

Meet 8:50 am for 9:04 train Kings Cross - Cambridge

Buy a day return rail ticket to Ely.

10:15 - 12:15 Cambridge cycle infrastucture quick inspection tour

Catholic Church junction (advance green on Hills Road branch)

http://www.camcycle.org.uk/blog/2013/09/05/cycle-green-advanced-light-welcomed-but-junction-remains-hostile/

"The junction here cost an incredible £900,000 to change. Half of this, £450,000, has come from a specific cycle safety fund"

"Will this junction encourage new people to cycle? Absolutely not. Will it deal with traffic congestion in the area? No, the County basically has a policy void on that."

We're not aiming to be as comprehensive as the tour organised last year for LCC by Cambridge Cycling Campaign because we're only allocating 2 hours to the Cambridge part of our ride:

There are pubs or tea-rooms at Waterbeach/Clayhithe (about 6 miles), Wicken (about 15 miles) and Ely. 

We'll probably aim to get lunch in Waterbeach and tea at Wicken.
