Signage on the new track alongside the Busway

Soon after the worryingly narrow footway on the Ouse Viaduct (photo 18875) the route reaches the eastbound bus stops as a 3m width shared use footway. (Cycle parking is provided on the other side of the busway, off-camera to right.) The pin ... [more]

At Station Road, new construction, only guided buses to be allowed to proceed across the bypass road to the park and ride site and on towards Cambridge. A car trap to be installed. Cycles apparently to join the footway here, to cross the by ... [more]

St Ives bypass, at guided bus and cycle route crossing, P+R site behind camera. Here and elsewhere in this development the shared-use footway is faulty, with lamp columns and signposts obstructing a too-narrow surface, and right-angle turns ... [more]

New Ouse Viaduct (Guided Bus replaces railway) with very narrow path under construction. Path is to be dedicated as public bridleway, but is too narrow and frighteningly close to fast-moving buses.

B1043

Brownshill Staunch lock - footpath only, not suitable for bikes (the bridge in the foreground is a conveyor carrying gravel).

Ouse Valley Way (bridleway) east of Holywell

Footpath junction west of Holywell

Ouse Valley Way between St Ives and Holywell - footpath only, but it could be a useful cycle link.

east end of Meadow Lane, St Ives

Meadow Lane - the Ouse Valley Way leaving St Ives, through roadworks for the guided bus Park and Ride.

Only footpaths alongside the river in St Ives, though it would be a useful cycle link (St Ives seems like an unpleasantly car-dominated town - signing of cycle routes to the centre would make a huge difference, rather than all signs leading ... [more]

All kinds of municipal metalwork in Somersham - what a shame they didn't see fit to install a Sheffield stand or two.

Bridleway on the former railway from Somersham to Chatteris - hardly suitable for cycling.

Footpath on the former railway from Somersham to Chatteris - hardly suitable for cycling.

Footpath on the former railway from Somersham to Chatteris - hardly suitable for cycling.

Footpath on the former railway from Somersham to Chatteris - hardly suitable for cycling either.

One-way street in Earith, with contraflow cycle lane - on the wrong side, ie continental-style.

A shop that sells bike bits in Ramsey.

The Eight Bells, Abbotsley - good lunches (including a decent vegetarian range)

Abbotsley green

Abbotsley church

St Neots church - cycle parking on Brook St (sign across the road)

St Neots, market day (and half-term) - empty cycle parking on Brook St

Cycle link from St Neots to the shared-use path along the A1 - rubbish!

Cycle route into St Neots from the A1 - that's it straight ahead

Shared-use path by the A1 (blocked by a BT van)

A high-class junction from the shared-use path

Two-way shared-use east of Buckden

Where's the cycle bypass?

Offord Cluny church

Great Paxton church

Yelling church

Warning, the old railway bridge over the river river Ouse has been taken down by "Edmund Nuttall" to build a new one for the guided bus. So currently there is no passage to/from St Ives here.

One of the views from this very quiet rural road which is perfect for cycling. Its been drizzling all day and all the cows are aligned in parallel, presumably to keep the rain out of their eyes as much as possible.

Contraflow cycle route in St Ives

The Hilton Turf Maze - a nice destination for a cycle with kids

Rubbish shared use cycleway in Huntingdon. Lampost here, dismount at the crossing. terrible!

Godmanchester cycleway

Ermine Street

This bloke was John Rankin - a cycling campaign member. We bumped into him quite by chance.

The route of a former railway line, and what was eventually to become the busway.

We had to go up that steep and stony embankment.

Not much fun riding along this when it is so stony.

Down a steep embankment again.

Pretty smooth here.

The sign says 'No Cars beyond this point' - we hadn't seen cars for ages so it seemed a bit out of place. However it turned out to be a popular anglers spot.
