This was the abrupt end to my ride to Huntingdon in January 2021. I ran out of road….
..and this is what the same spot looked like in May 2021. The A14 enhancement NMU route from Girton to Fenstanton is complete! Gettting to Huntingdon is still a bit of a muddle, the cycleway kind of peters out as you get to Fenstanton where it’s back to either riding on the pavement or taking your luck with the speeding traffic between villages…and boy do they speed!
Although the NMU route is much better than using the racetrack roads it doesn’t get to Huntingdon and involves quite a bit of pavement riding to get to Fenstanton.
So the route to Huntingdon is incomplete despite the millions spent. 8km short and a choice of a direct route riding on the A1307 or a ramble around a series of minor roads with stop start ‘shared’ pavements and winter flooded meadow paths.
