The annual A10 Awareness Cycle Ride – organised by the group campaigning for safer cycling along the busy A-road, will take place next Sunday morning, May 15.

The campaign cycle will start at Trumpington Park and Ride in Cambridge and finish at Phillimore Garden Centre, Melbourn, for tea and cake.

This will be an opportunity to experience first-hand the new off-road cycle path connecting Harston to Foxton and Shepreth.

It has been decided that the Royston to Melbourn segment, which was organised last year, is too dangerous to include on this year’s ride.

County Councillor and campaign member Susan van de Ven said: “We are continuing to work for a safe link to Royston, our nearest market town.”

The next meeting of the campaign group will take place on June 7, 7 for 7.30pm start, at Sagentia, in Harston Mill.
