Letter: Cyclists' nightmare

Click to follow
Sir: I'm so pleased the Independent has drawn attention to the plight of cyclists in Cambridge (report, 15 November). It seems ironic that at a time when city councils throughout the rest of England are trying to encourage cycling by making it safer, Cambridge is doing the reverse: throwing cyclists on to main roads and into heavy traffic, so as to create a 'shopper's paradise in the city centre, like Peterborough'.

Every afternoon I bike home from school with my two young children on our new route, and I curse those who have taken away one of the chief pleasures of living in this beautiful city.

Yours sincerely,
