Cycling improvements

The cycle track which follows the guided busway has been so successful that The Department for Transport has agreed to fund improvements to the Thicket path east of St Ives. This path links St Ives and Huntingdon, and is effectively a continuation of the busway track. The £30 million comes from the DfT's 'Linking Places Fund'. Although 43% of British people own bicycles, only 2% of journeys are made by bike. Improvements to the Thicket path have potential to attract cyclists from Huntingdon who want to continue their journeys from St Ives towards Cambridge by bus or cycle . Hunts Post, 14 March, page 4
