Cambridgeshire's WW1 historic sites

As part of the commemorations of a hundred years since World War One, these cycle and walking maps have been produced to highlight Cambridgeshire's links to this important historic event.

BikeBus Explorer

The BikeBus Explorer is a public bus which tows a 20 cycle trailer and runs from Cambridge Railway Station to Gamlingay via Wimpole Hall on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The bus encourages people to walk and cycle for leisure around Cambridgeshire.

The BikeBus is run by South Cambridgeshire District Council and is part funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund and National Trust.

Walking routes

The Walk Local project has produced 2 leaflets on walking routes around Kings Hedges and Arbury in Cambridge. Many of the walks are aimed at people who do little or no exercise but who would like to be a little more active. Walking in a group is also a great way to start walking, make new friends and stay motivated.
