A Meldreth company has become the 100th business to sign a letter of support for a cycling route along the A10 corridor connecting Cambridge and Royston.
Setup Scenery in Malton Lane put pen to paper on the document, sponsored by the A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign, which has been presented to the Greater Cambridge City Deal executive board.
The board did not include rural cycling schemes on its priority list in January.
Melbourn county councillor Susan van de Ven, who is chairman of the campaign, said: “The level of support has been overwhelming.
“So many businesses know exactly how many of their employees are already cycling to work, and say that many more would do so if conditions were better.
“Cycle paths need to be delivered in their entirety, not piecemeal fashion, if they are to provide a viable alternative to driving.
“It is great news that part of the A10, from Cambridge to Foxton, has now got funding from the Cycling Ambition fund, but the City Deal project is intended to fill gaps, this means addressing the Shepreth to Royston segment, which has a vibrant business and employment bubble.”
