Cycle maps of Cambridge have been translated into two European languages, to help foreign visitors better understand road safety rules.

The maps have been translated into French and Spanish.

It gives information on road signs and markings, as well as including details of cycle tours and routes out to Granchester and Ely.

Cambridgeshire County Council says ''it was felt that Spanish and French were the most suitable languages to be used on the map as these nations provide the largest number of foreign independent travellers or students to the city.''

The map will be stocked by local hotels and cycle-hire and tour companies.

County Councillor Ian Bates, Cabinet Member for Growth and Planning said: "The map contains some vital road safety messages for foreign cyclists, and clearly shows where they are able to cycle, and clarifies the meaning of many road traffic signs."
