AN increase in people using cycles in market towns such as March, Wisbech, Chatteris and Whittlesey has helped Cambridgeshire County Council win a top national transport award.
Judges were impressed by the county's record in bucking national trends, which have seen a decline in cycling, by working with partners to improve and expand cycling facilities.
The award was one of several in an event organised by the Robert Gordon University of Aberdeen. The cycling award was sponsored by the Department for Transport.
And the popularity of cycling as a form of transport was not limited to Cambridge.
