SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Petition for Cycle Bridge from The Abbey to Chesterton

Dear All

The cambridge Cycling Campaign are campaigning (well they would wouldn't they)for a cycle route through Cambridge, which includes a cycle bridge from the Abbey to Chesterton. The address below is the link to the petition for this bridge, which is necessary for the completion of the route, and has been objected to, hence the petition

I hope you will join me in signing the petition

I have signed it and hope everyone else will too. These anti bridge NIMBYs get on my nerves. There is already a a railway bridge there FFS!

Re: Petition for Cycle Bridge from The Abbey to Chesterton

i'm totaly behind this.
it was proposed as a requirement for the new station in Chesterton.
to leave it out will put even more traffic on to the Green Dragon Bridge.....which coincidentaly seems to have some "proposed upgrades" in the offing, and if funding becomes available widening.......i smell a backup plan/ get out clause here.

sign, sign, sign!!!
