Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Cambridge Cycling Campaign was formed in 1995 to provide a voice for cyclists in Cambridge and the surrounding villages. We aren't a cycling club, but an organisation of volunteers campaigning for the rights of cyclists and promoting cycling in and around Cambridge. We lobby for better and more convenient conditions for cycling, safer roads, and more people on bikes. It is now a charity, registered number 1138098. More information at https://www.camcycle.org.uk

  • Buxhall School/Greanleas cycleway

    Tom McKeown // 1 thread

    A new path is being added to the west side of the B1049 to connect the Greanleas estate to the Buxhall farm school.  It is too narrow for shared used.  Can we improve this?

  • Head-on crash highlights problem with Genome (DNA) Trail

    Created by Mark Troll // 1 thread

      A friend of mine had a head-on collision with an invisible , un-lit cyclist on the DNA trail about 2 months ago.  The end of his handlebar went through his face, breaking his jaw and many facial bones, and he also had serious damage to his hip and leg.  He was in hospital for about 2 months, and was very nearly paralyzed.  As many of you know, the trail is narrow and very dark at night, when many people are coming home from the Adenbrookes campus.  I am trying to persuade the County Council to make the path wider (there is a total of 17 feet on either side) and have it lighted with overhead lighting (solar powered ones are commercially available).  Please let your County Council person know, and also please consider signing the petition at:

    https://cambridgeshire.cmis.uk.com/ccc_live/ePetitions/tabid/115/ID/38/DNA-path-improvements-needed.aspx

    I really want to reduce the chances that others will be injured on this heavily used path

  • Dangerous Snakey Trail

    Created by DB // 1 thread

    New to the area. 

    I am cycling on the snakey trail every day, and there is a high risk that somebody falls into the Cherry Hinton Brook one day. The path and bridge is really  too narrow and many people are taking it both ways.

  • Coldhams Lane

    Created by Paula Downes // 2 threads

    The road is unloved, has very few trees, has a lot of traffic, moving fast or jammed. Air quality is poor. Cyclists cycle along the pavement very fast which is dangerous for pedestrians. The cycle lanes on the road are not safe. It is difficult for cyclists to cross the road since there are not enough crossings. A lot of people park near Coldhams Common on Saturdays. Many people have created driveways to avoid people parking in front of their houses in the parking bays. Crossing the little roads (Brampton, Vinery Road, Vinery Way) is difficult because the cars block the path as they wait to get onto Coldhams Lane and greenery prevents pedestrians from going behind those cars.
