Chesterfield Cycle Campaign promotes cycle use in Chesterfield for both leisure and utility journeys.  By campaigning for a comprehensive network, we aim to improve conditions for cyclists so that cycling becomes a safer and more attractive option than car travel for local journeys.

Bike Thefts

A number of bicycles have been stolen from sheds in the Brampton area in the last few days. Details of one of them below, please keep a look out:

Big bike 62 cm frame - Cube ‘Nature’ Hybrid - light grey in colour with distinctive bright orange logo’s. It is fitted with a black Brooks B17 Leather Saddle. It also has black metal rear pannier/ luggage rack and matching Cube kick stand/ prop.

Waterside Housing Application

A planning application has been received by Chesterfield Borough Council for the residential part of the Waterside development called 'The Park'.

We had hoped for good cycling infrastructure to be included but sadly not.

A path is shown from the north east edge of the development to the access road but not continuing to the southern boundary. There is no easy access from the development to the Trans Pennine Trail to facilitate journeys to the railway station and town centre either.

Ashgate Road Coop

When the new Coop opened on Ashgate Road there were no cycle parking stands provided. In the planning application one document had them shown and another didn't! 

Our Campaign tweeted about this and within a few minutes the Coop replied promising to rectify the situation. Following subsequent contact by email the stands have now been provided.

Our first meeting of 2019 will be on Tuesday 8th January. 7.30pm at Chesterfield Community Centre. All welcome. The agenda and minutes available via the menu on the left.

Twelve riders turned up for our tour around Chesterfield looking at Christmas lights and several more came along to the Portland Hotel afterwards.

2018 AGM

The Campaign 2018 AGM will be held on Tuesday 13th November. 7.30pm at Chesterfield Community Centre (adjacent to the coach station). All are welcome.

Clowne Branch Line

News just received from DCC:

the development of the Clowne Branch Line as a multi user Greenway shall commence from the week commencing 12th November. It is expected that the works shall begin with a programme of tree removal from the track bed, the cutting walls and the tops of the cuttings. This is to promote the grassland species for habitat development and to promote safety along the route.

Inevitably, it is anticipated that access along the route will be disrupted but the contractor is mindful to keep the path open for as much of the time and length as possible.

There will be a Public Information Event at the Clowne Community Centre on Thursday 15th November between 12.30 and 6.30pm for members of the public to drop in to find out what is happening and what to expect.

Big Bike Revival Ride

Join the Big Bike Revival Ride, Sunday October 14th, leaving from Tapton Lock at 1.00pm. The route is a circuit of the Trans Pennine Trail loop, out through Tapton, Brimington Common and Inkersall and back along the railway path past Poolsbrook Country Park to Staveley and then the canal path back to Tapton Lock. Its about 10 miles.

We'll be stopping at Katey's cafe at the Hollingwood Hub for refreshments, please bring some money if you intend stopping there.

All welcome but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
