Cyclists have to use the zebra crossing to reach the start of the cycleway at St Ives!

It's not at all clear, but cyclists should use the shared-use footway to the left rather than crossing next to the car trap to reach the cycleway.

Covered cycle parking at St Ives bus station.

Cut through from Waitrose car park to St Ives bus station.

Cyclists are supposed to use the shared-use footway to the left to reach the cycleway, but some will want to pass next to the car traps here.

Cyclists are supposed to leave the cycleway on the shared-use footway to the right, but many will want to use the road here.

Dropped kerb needed here for access to the cycleway.

Houghton Mill, National Trust. This makes a great destination for a ride out from Cambridge, along the Guided Busway to St Ives and then along the riverside track.

The National Trust has a tea room at Houghton Mill which serves the usual selection of cakes or cream teas! This is a good destination for a ride out from Cambridge along the Guided Busway and then via St Ives and the river side track.

Houghton Mill, National Trust. There is a tea room by the mill pond. This is an accessible ride from St Ives and the Guided Busway. It took us a leisurely 1.5 hours from Cambridge.

With the bridleway flooded and icy on both sides of the busway in this area users wanting to get through are forced to walk or cycle on the trackway.

Cycle parking in front of the statue of Cromwell. Not as safe as it seems: http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Home/UPDATE-Woman-seriously-injured-after-car-crashes-into-shop-and-ploughed-into-fencing-of-Cromwell-statue-20092012.htm

Cycling on an iced over road. Note: this is on a bridleway with a thin layer of ice on top. It is not an iced-over river or canal, where riding a bike would be very dangerous and potentially fatal.

Lit, but empty car park. At least only half of it is lit see #19787. Photos along the route of the Busway between Oakington and St Ives.

The mileage shown here: 19 is out of sync with the other distances we've seen on the signs between Cambridge and St Ives. This distance should be 14 miles. Photos along the route of the Busway between Oakington and St Ives.
