There is a 3,000 space cycle park at Cambridge Station (just one minute from the Tamburlaine Hotel). You can hire bikes from Rutland Cycles who have stores on the ground floor of the Cyclepoint at Cambridge station or the basement of the Grand Arcade in town. Camcycle (Cambridge Cycling Campaign) has a list of resources to help you find your way around.
