I'm not sure it would be practical to mark all cycle parking in
Cambridge, there is a vast amount in small groups, though there are some
key places, and it is useful to show where in a vast supermarket car
park the bikes stands are: my local Tesco, for example, has some 60
spaces round the side of the store. There are a few bigger places, like
the 70+ space cycle store in Park Street, and the 500 space cycle park
which is opening in the new Grand Arcade shopping centre in September.
