My Cambridge Commute By Bike

I hope you’ve all had a super Easter weekend. We caught up on things at home and watched movies. We finally watched Frozen and I really hope it is made into a West End show soon. AMAZING!

Today I want to share with you some photos. G and I have been taking an online photography class for the last few weeks, and although we are a bit behind, (silly life getting in the way) I’m definitely understanding my camera more.

3 years ago, I decided to give up the train commute to London and found a day job in Cambridge. It was one of the best things I ever did. Not only has it saved me £5000 a year(!) but it has been a lifestyle change and I get to enjoy the most wonderful commute ever. Here are the best bits of my journey by bicycle…..


It’s tourist season already, so I do have to ring my bike bell often to clear the path!


Florence has a pretty seat but it’s not actually that comfy for long rides. Luckily my commute is 7 minutes door to door.


The Cambridge Museum of Technology towers above the riverside.


There are always rowers on the river at any time of the day.


Cambridge does flowers really well. Florence and I stop often, just to enjoy them.


You could mistake this park for Amsterdam there are so many beautiful tulips.


Blossom never gets old! My Instagram feed is filled with it as everyone I follow agrees.


Punters are out in force already. Bring on summer – I can now navigate a punt confidently (only took me 6 years and a lot of bumping into the bank).


I’ve taken lunch breaks on this bench, it’s a perfect spot for quiet time.


It helps that it is Spring right now too! Obviously for my second job at Claireabellemakes I have a home studio. I will be sharing it really soon after a little makeover!

You can catch up on all my Cambridge themed posts here.

How do you commute to work? I’d love to hear in the comments below.

  1. Morning Claire!
    A belated Happy Easter to you and glad to hear you’ve had a nice weekend! Love to catch up on your Blog – I really need to update mine, started to bring it up to date a couple of weeks ago but, as you quite rightly said, life gets in the way!
    I’m really lucky as I live about 5mins from my office, so I get to walk to work and can cut through our lovely, local park which always looks lovely – the guys work so very hard to keep it looking beautiful. Like you said about Cambridge, Rugby also does flowers and the baskets and tubs, really, really well – I’ll have to take some photos and post them on my Blog. A couple of the local councillors have recently helped to plant out an ‘edible’ bed in the town with herbs and the idea is that once the herbs are established, people can help themselves and use them in their cooking – what a fabulous idea!
    Enjoy your Easter Monday – looking forward to hearing about your craft room makeover!
