If there’s a place that loves to cycle, it’s got to be Cambridge. Students and townsfolk alike prefer to use two wheels rather than four to negotiate the city’s medieval passageways. With over 80 miles of bike lanes in the centre, there’s much to explore but it’s the north side of Cambridge that offers the best chance to really let off steam.

Leave the cobbled streets and ancient colleges behind you and head out to the open green spaces of Christ’s Pieces and Midsummer Common, where Red Poll bullocks are still grazed today. You should meet the River Cam here and spy the college rowing teams preparing for the biannual Bumps competition.

Across the water are the university’s boathouses and you can follow them along the Cam to the suburb of Chesterton, stopping at the various riverside pubs en route. Alternatively turn down Elizabeth Way and try another of the city’s rides for size.
