Cycling is a great way of staying healthy and reducing traffic congestion. Many people living and working along the A10 between Cambridge and Royston say they would cycle rather than drive if conditions were safe.
The A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign will be holding a sponsored cycle ride on December 19th, starting at 12:15 from Royston Station. The ride will be short – 30 minutes around town – but riders will be cycling in Santa gear, tinsel and maybe a white beard or two.
Why are we doing this?
The purpose is to initiate match-funding opportunities toward a safe off-road A10 path and A505 bridge, linking Melbourn and Royston.
Although some high quality cycle path is being built at the northern end, the Melbourn-Royston stretch remains a rough walking track that has disintegrated and overgrown to such an extent that it resembles little more that a building site. The A10 roundabout at the A505 junction is a busy and dangerous crossing. We want to show Local, Regional and National Government and local businesses that we local residents are prepared to do our bit to help bring about much-needed safe cycling conditions.
