An online survey into recent cycling improvements aims to help Cambridgeshire County Council get even more people on their bikes.
Cambridgeshire is already seen the capital of Britain for encouraging people to cycle, with more than a quarter of commuters riding to work in Cambridge.
Councillors have now formed a cross-party working group that will undertake a review of some of the more recently introduced cycling schemes across the county.
Cambridgeshire County Councillor Mandy Smith, chair of the review, said: “We want to come out of it with a better idea of what the council needs to do in the future to continue to help residents to make greener, safer, and more sustainable transport choices.”
The working group will be looking at the Hills Road and Huntingdon Road Cycleways in Cambridge, the Lisle Lane Cycle Path in Ely, the Wimblington Road Scheme in March, the A10 Cycle Scheme (Cambridge to Royston), and the cycle route from Needingworth to Bluntisham.
Councillors hope to identify through the review what kind of facilities get people on their bikes and how these can be introduced in a way that causes minimal disruption during the construction phases.
Surveys will be closing at midnight on Sunday 19 March.
