The bridge over river between Aldreth and Willingham

Shared use path from Lode to Bottisham.

A hill between Brinkley and Great Bradley on a quiet cycle route from Cambridge to Harwich (http://connect.garmin.com/course/4898400). Compare this road's width to a Dutch style cycleway #53540

National Cycle Route 11 following the River Great Ouse towards the Ely boatyard and the Cutter Inn. From a CTC Cambridge ride. NCR 11 is narrow here and busy with pedestrians. It would be nice to have a bit more width.

Cycling atop the embankment of the River Ouse, with Ely Cathedral in the distance. From a CTC Cambridge ride.

Shared use cycleway in Ely, politely waiting until the pedestrians ahead give way to us.

This is the ONLY access to the up (southbound, to Cambridge and London) platform at Littleport - I wouldn't want to be late for my train, even without a bike.

Step-free access to the northbound platform (and indirectly the southbound platform) at Littleport station.

This is so well thought out. The cycle path surface, the signs and the information boards. Great ride and great views.

The National Cycle Route bypassing Burwell

Byway east of Burwell.

Byway east of Burwell.

Bridleway east of Burwell.

Shared-use path south from Fordham - also shared with horses.

Shared-use path between two new roundabouts south of Fordham.

Shared-use path around new roundabout at Snailwell.

Bridleway east of Newmarket.

Technically a footpath, but you can cycle up to the entry to Chippenham Fen National Nature Reserve,

Shared-use path from Fordham east to the Chippenham turning.

Shared-use path in Fordham

Path by Fordham church.

Narrow shared-use path in Fordham.

Start of rough byway towards Burwell.

Cut-through by Barclay's Bank in Burwell. I have no idea why there's a No Pedestrians sign in front of the bank.

This cut-through is not part of the National Cycle Network route.

Windmill, and end of shared-use path from Burwell to Swaffham Prior.

Start of shared-use path from Swaffham Prior to Burwell

On the very handy 'Swaffham Bulbeck bypass' - footpaths on both sides of Swaffham Bulbeck Lode, but on the east side it's actually a road that connects to the Lodes Way and Wicken Fen.

Two-way shared-use path east of Lode - a good enough surface, as long as it's maintained, but really not wide enough for two bikes to pass.

There's a small car parking area near the approach to the new bridge, at Tubney Fen.

A crossing awaiting opening

Recently widened footway near Anglesey Abbey

Section of the Lodes Way (NCN11) cycle route seen from the footbridge. A new cycle bridge is needed to complete this part of the route.

Taken from the footbridge on the Lodes Way (NCN11) looking back towards section of new cycle track on top right.

The new bridge crosses the river in one arc without touching the pre-existing levees, and has these flood channels which can be used by vehicles and livestock.

View of the Wicken Fen spine route from the new bridge.

The new lode bridge

View of the new lode bridge.

The new bridge goes right over the river without interfering with the levees.

Jubilee Gardens, Ely

Crossing to Jubilee Gardens, Ely

Cycle route from Back Hill to Jubilee Gardens, through King's School, Ely

start of route from Back Hill to Jubilee Gardens, through King's School, Ely.

Jubilee Gardens, Ely

Crossing point over industrial park access road. Reduce width and flare of lanes to improve safety.

Crossing point at A142 roundabout. This sort of periferal cycle track is very slow and unpopular. To improve safety, reduce the flare on the entry and exit lanes.

Westley Road - a gravel byway to the level crossing, then asphalt to Westley Bottom and Westley Waterless.

North end of Aldreth Causeway (byway)

Footbridge linking to future link from Reach to Wicken Fen spine route.

It's unclear where the shared-use path actually ends, but it seems to be just north of Bottisham Village College - at least cyclists don't have to give way at every driveway.

New shared-use path at the northern exit from Bottisham.

The new cycle track to the Swaffham Bulbeck Lode bridge doesn't just follow the hedge like a normal fens track but weaves around artistically. There's also a balancing pond worthy of a motorway project.

Swaffham Bulbeck Lode - the old footbridge, with the new bridge in the distance.

Swaffham Bulbeck Lode bridge - watch out for loose gravel as you turn right at the bottom.

The future Wicken Fen Spine Route, well below the level of Reach Lode.

The end of the road at Reach Lode - the missing link to Wicken Fen. The bridge should be built by the winter of 2009-10.

And suddenly - a high-standard cycle track appears out of nowhere.

The end of White Fen Droveway - a byway, but cyclists are better off on the asphalt road immediately to the north.

Turn right here for the Wicken Fen Spine Route.

In theory White Fen Droveway continues as this bway, but cyclists can stay on the asphalt road immediately to the north.

This seems to be a new shared-use path from Lode to Bottisham Village College.

This is an old railway line and the surface is very good for cycling.
