Barrington-Shepreth Bridge

Just south of Barrington, the bridge over the river on the road to Shepreth is closed to allow it to be strengthened. A temporary footbridge has been provided alongside for pedestrians and cyclists.

Ian B recently went that way with his camera. Read his report here.

Swavesey to St Ives

Some good news! The busway cycleway between Swavesey and St Ives is now fully open. The remaining flooding has receded and the muddy debris that was left behind has been cleaned away.

Cycling in the time of Coronavirus

Can I still cycle? Cycling UK CEO Paul Tuohy has just written to members saying "Yes you can". Although Cycling UK has advised all local groups to cancel all their rides, Paul says that "We're not saying that all your cycling activity needs to stop."  

Cycling UK has spoken to Cycle magazine's medical expert Dr Kate Hattersley, a South Devon Cycling UK group member, and practising GP in Exeter who explains how you can still go out cycling but minimise your risk as an individual cyclist. Read what she says here.

Coronavirus and CTC Cambridge

Following the latest government guidance on the Coronavus outbreak, Cycling UK has (on 17th March) updated its advice to local groups, and in accordance with this advice we are cancelling all our rides until further notice.

The statement from Cycling UK includes the following:  

As a result of this revised guidance, Cycling UK has taken the decision to ask all its member and affiliate groups not to run any group activities, including club runs or events.

This is in line with advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UCI, with the aim of ensuring the maximum protection of people across the world.

However, people should not avoid cycling altogether as it remains a great way to keep fit and active and is a good way to boost immunity.

The safety and wellbeing of Cycling UK’s staff, volunteers, riders, beneficiaries of our cycling programmes and the general public remains our number one priority.
