Mike Stapleton writes: The A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign is running its annual cycle ride to publicise the need to complete the cycle path from Cambridge to Royston. The ride takes place on Sunday 7th May starting at 10am from Trumpington Park and Ride just off the A10.
The ride will terminate at Phillimore Garden Centre where refreshments will be available. The Park and Ride site can be accessed easily from Cambridge Station by following the guided busway south which leads directly to it.
We started these rides just four years ago when the first small section of the route was completed. Since then we have achieved a huge success with help from various agencies. Only one major section of the route between Melbourn and Cambridge remains which will be completed shortly. The campaign is now focused on the final section to Royston which runs through two counties and has to cross a major road. This section needs a bridge and is expensive. Getting two counties and various supporters involved to co-operate has been a major task. The ride will attract cyclists of every persuasion demonstrating that a large number of users need the facility. Those attending will range from children to commuters and leisure cyclists.
