Cambridge’s relatively flat terrain, wide streets and footpaths, cycle lanes and pedestrian crossings make it ideal for biking around. So bring you own or hire when you get here. There are many bike racks around town and on the main street to park up at. We also have bike friendly Town Belt loop through, made beautiful by all of our exotic and native trees , some as old as 150 years.
