Cycling should be permitted, not diverted to indirect surrounding routes.

See the relevant official government guidance, Manual For Streets 2 section 2.3.12.

Cycling in the pedestrian zone in central Cambridge works fine. Predictions in 2005 of major problems simply haven't arisen, and there is no significant collision record.

Banning cycling just penalises people who cycle sensibly - those riding carelessly are the type of people that would do so anyway despite any signs.

The current cycling ban particular affects children going from school at 3-4pm, who have to take more dangerous routes as a result.

Weekdays have few pedestrians anyway.
