Rides for the Cambridge Festival of Cycling

The Cambridge Festival of Cycling continues until the end of September. This is a month-long celebration of cycling in the UK's cycling capital, organised by Camcycle, the Cambridge Cycling Campaign. See the full list of events.

Road and path closures

There have been a number of road and cycle path closures this summer. Here is a brief summary:

Ditton Meadows: The wooden jetty that takes NCN 51 under the railway in eastern Cambridge is completely closed until summer 2020. This affects everybody cycling along the river between central Cambridge and east Cambridge, Fen Ditton, Quy and beyond. More information.

Busway Cycleway between Orchard Park and Histon: This has now reopened. However further closures are likely in "late October" (See this Tweet from Highways England).

Mill Road Railway Bridge: This has now reopened to vehicles.
