Nearly all the walks can also be done on a sturdy bike, although rough ground and stiles are not uncommon. All, of course, include a visit to the pub. You'll need a good street map of Cambridge with paths marked - try the Ordnance Survey 1:10000 city map. Outside Cambridge you'll need the relevant OS 1:50000 or 1:25000 map. All the descriptions now include photographs and maps with overlaid routes and waymark points.
Did you see the review in the Guardian newspaper? - "Cambridge Corners gives admirably detailed info for cycles inside the city and in the countryside ..." - wahey!!
