Bridge over the A14

The farm access road from Bar Hill to Girton is now signposted as a bridleway. The route to Girton is the narrow path just to the right of the obvious route. The footpath to the right should be improved as a cycle route to Eddington.

Washpit Lane to Girton, with the silly little gate removed.

The farm access road from Bar Hill to Girton is now signposted as a bridleway - for a lot of cyclists this will be a better route to/from Cambridge than the cycleway by the A1307 past the crematorium.

Farmers... so territorial. Cyclists have to dismount here on the temporary 'farm access' link from Fenstanton to Swavesey beside the new A14.

Shared-use path from the A14 bridge towards Conington, with the temporary 'farm access' link to Swavesey turning left (and a footpath to the right).

Not really a cycleable path from the A14 bridge to Hilton

Sudden end of shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14

The old road from St Ives to Hilton cut off by the new A14 - now signed as a footpath that turns right and right again - ok for dog-walkers.

Shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14, and the old road to the right, now signed as a footpath.

Sudden end of shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14 - no easy access for southbound cyclists.

There's a largely redundant dual-carriageway, but instead of taking a lane to provide the missing link cycleway between Swavesey and Fenstanton, they're spending much more time and money on a new alignment in the fields.

Now properly signed - Scotland Drove bridleway from the A1307 cycle path to Swavesey

There's no safe crossing of the A1307 here, but the shared-use path on the far side simply ends and cyclists towards Fenstanton are supposed to head north on the A1307 here (but it seems the farm access road to the west is an alternative).

This farm access road allows cyclists to reach Fenstanton and beyond without riding on the A1307 - a temporary measure until the cycleway by the A1307 is completed in mid-2021.

Start of Utton's Drove bridleway to Northstowe and Swavesey

Pedestrians can cross at the roundabout, but equestrians and perhaps cyclists are expected to cross where motor traffic is moving faster, for some reason.

NCN51 is also a narrow road to an hotel and adjacent to thundering A14 traffic.

Abandoned hot tub shop gets more priority than cycling here. Typical Highways England. (in the distance you can see the fancy new Swavesey / Boxworth End bridge)

Mediocre crossing of Bar Hill perimeter road. It is set away from the roundabout but it forces you to cross both ways at once. Visibility is poor coming from this direction.

New Bar Hill bridge.

Parallel Toucan and Pegasus crossings.

Overly wide and dangerous expanses of tarmac to cross, with vehicles speeding on/off the roundabout, a Highways England signature.

New NMU path on Dry Drayton Road bridge

New cycle/pedestrian bridge over the new A14

There's no sign at the bridge, but this footpath may still be closed, in theory.

Only the narrow path to the right is open, but it should be possible to open up the old route to the left.

This bridge across the A14 has finally been cleared of useless barriers.

No Entry to the slip road from the A1307 (the former A14) and one of various car-oriented housing developments here.

The A1307, formerly the A14

I imagine there was once a staggered crossing here - maybe it'll be restored one day now that this isn't the A14.

There seems to be a foot/cycleway on this bridge across the new A14. According to https://billboyheritagesurvey.wordpress.com/2021/01/15/old-new-cycle-routes-around-cambridge/?unapproved=6947&moderation-hash=4aae1e77ddd8a7ac0fb8cf2edfb9e ... [more]

The A1307 (by the new A14) is not yet open here - and they've stationed a bloke in a van to stop cyclists after one almost got squashed the other week.

No cycling on the A14 north from Cambridge (but plenty of shoulder space)

I assume a bridleway link will be restored to the A1307 shared-use path.

Abrupt end of possible route towards Dry Drayton

Bike repairs and sales at the rear of Cambridge crematorium

What a waste of road space - shouldn't this be used as a bus lane or something? [see www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/cambridge-news/cyclists-fear-deathtrap-road-could-18361599 for the dangers to cyclists here]

NMU path over bridge nearly complete, still missing top layer on bridge deck.

You can get through on the cycleway by the new A1307, but there are some unsurfaced sections.

Shared-use cycleway under construction at the Dry Drayton junction of the new A1307.

Cycleway by the new road from Lolworth to the A14/A1307 junction (with the usual South Cambridgeshire obsession with horse-riding as well as cycling and walking).

An obvious link from Lolworth and the A1307 to Swavesey, but visitors are clearly not wanted.

Hi @A14C2H, this is the (complete?unfinished?) NE corner of the Histon roundabout. It is way too narrow to allow safe 2-way cycle traffic (and esp for cargo/trailer bikes). Could you please look at this? @camcycle https://t.co/aq1PQHTEcg

08_2013_37 Local cycle route near A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon [See nearby tab for other photos of this sign]

Not as bad as it looks, but never the less, a clutter of signal poles at the A14 slip roads

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A The bottom end of Washpit Lane is overgrown. Quite awkward to get through here with brambles seeking blood! Despite this being the same bridleway route through to Girton as http://cambridge.cycl ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A This is a cycle route across and through the A14/M11 junction. It goes along the side of the A14. Notice that the signs are NOT in the path. An example of good practice!

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Path through A14/M11 junction overgrown. My hand got ripped from my handlebars trying to get through this bush. Reported to County Council, reference NM-77757.
