Cambridge Busway Pictures – Swavesey to St. Ives

It was sunnier yesterday, so I took some more pictures of the Cambridge Busway from Swavesey to St. Ives.  I actually parked at Fen Drayton Lakes and used my Brompton.

Incidentally Fen Drayton Lakes looked a great place to take a family and with a stop right in the middle, I hope they get the ticketing for families right.  It has been reported that the two bus companies will not be allowing interchangeable ticketing.

Pictures for the Cambridge to Swavesey section are shown here.

  3. I met someone on Saturday who’d done the trip to Cambridge and back on quite an ordinary mountain-bike. I forgot to ask him whether it can really be as much as 19 miles, as it says on the special blue cycling sign-post. Driving is only 16 miles via the A14! Google takes you down the M11, and that’s still only 17.4 miles.

    Parts of the cycle surface from St Ives is only forest track smooth, but a lot of it is much better, and from Longstanton it’s supposed to be tarmacadamed. Pity parts of it have been under-water recently.

  4. Let’s hope it all works out.

    It would be rather nice to have a track that was easy. So that on the one hand serious cyclists could have fast fun, but on the other hand families with kids could introduce them safely to the joys of pedal power.
