Celebrating the Busway Opening
Celebrating the Busway Opening
The infamous Guided Busway has a cycle track alongside - so far tarmacked from Cambridge as far as Swavesey. On the occasion of the busway's much-delayed opening, the Cambridge Cycling Campaign organised a ride to publicise this parallel facility. Here the ride has just gathered itself together at Milton Road and is approaching the station/bus stop at Cambridge Regional College.
