CYCLING in Royston will be one focus of a new campaign group launched this week.
As reported in the Crow last week, the A10 Corridor Cycle Campaign held its first meeting on Tuesday in Meldreth.
County councillor Susan van de Ven, who is leading the group, was pleased with the turnout for the launch.
She said: “The Melbourn-Royston stretch of the A10 was identified as particularly vital for people who cycle to work.
“A large contingent of Royston people at the meeting agreed that a special subgroup focusing on Royston cycling is needed.

“Similarly, another contingent reflecting the significant flow of cycling north towards Cambridge pointed out treacherous conditions along many segments of the route.”
“The meeting felt that the overall distance between Royston and Cambridge is relatively short and should ideally by supported by good cycling conditions, which would present a multitude of benefits – not just for cyclists themselves but in terms of reducing the number of cars on the road.”
