Today’s blog post is also known as “Wisteria hysteria and the day of bike spotting”. Spring in Cambridge is the perfect excuse for me to take a cycle around the city with my camera for another post in my Tourist In Cambridge series.
The wisteria around Cambridge is abundant this year – it covers the pretty cottages and terraced houses, and even appears on some student accommodation. This post took quite a while to shoot as there were so many people stopping to take photographs of this mound of wisteria!
The sunny skies made for a beautiful backdrop and of course there were lots of bikes around as well as Florence who is still modelling her basket tassels.
Cambridge has so many green spaces and the cows are back on the common! They are so friendly and often create traffic by wandering across the cycle paths. It’s a sign that summer is on the way in the city.
There’s always a good door or two to enjoy as well.
My favourite bikes to spot are Pashley and Bobbin. They have so many beautiful colours and styles. The new range of University of Cambridge Bobbin bikes are so classy, especially the 3 speed chrome paint ladies bike.
I’m definitely enjoying looking at the wisteria hysteria hashtag on Instagram lately!My red Cambridge Satchel Company batchel is the perfect bag for cycling as it fits in my basket and can also been worn across the body when I’ve got too many groceries.
I can’t wait for Spring to turn into summer. We’ll be punting, kayaking, having picnics and taking long bike rides along the river. It’s the perfect place to be.
