How can active travel routes be designed into our cities to make walking and cycling the natural first choice?
Themes: Transport Design, Active Travel, Cycle Infrastructure, Connectivity
Explore Cambridge, the UK’s cycling capital, on a tour led by John Dales, a transport planner specialising in active travel, together with locally-based architect Meredith Bowles and representatives from Camcycle (Cambridge’s local cycling charity and campaigning organisation). We will ride on and through some of the city’s latest cycling infrastructure – the Chisholm trail and its bridge over the River Cam, the path alongside the guided busway, Histon Road’s ‘CYCLOPS’ junction – and via scenic routes through the historic centre. We’ll see the guided busway itself, of course, as well as the all-new Cambridge North station (and large cycle park) that opened in 2017. Along the way, the tour will also pop in to the recent developments at Eddington, Marmalade Lane and the Ironworks.
Join us on this engaging tour to witness the city from a cyclist's perspective; learn about Cambridge’s wider transport ambitions; get a feel for Cambridge as whole and how different parts fit together; learn about innovative, creative and genuinely sustainable developments; feel the wind in your hair; and have fun!
