Cambridge to St Ives along the Busway

12 miles (20 km)

Enjoy a walk or cycle along this disused railway line which now forms part of National Cycle Network Route 51. It's now a great traffic free tarmac path following the route of the new Cambridgeshire Guided Busway which connectsCambridge,HuntingdonandSt Ives. It runs just alongside the busway starting near the Cambridge Science Park just north of the city centre. You then head west passing Histon and the lovely Fen Drayton Lakes. The reserve has a number of lakes, ponds and lagoons with the River Great Ouse running through it as well. Shortly after you arrive at the market town of St Ives where the route finishes. You have the option of continuing along route 51 to Huntingdon which is just a few miles to the west. It's a nice flat, safe route which is ideal for families or anybody looking for an easy cycle ride or pleasant stroll. Along the way there's great views of the surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside.
