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.

Barriers next to Park Road

The Borough Council have agreed that the barriers have not been installed correctly. We are now awaiting contractors to move one barrier further away from Park Road and install with at least a 2m gap between them.

Derby Road

The 'Copenhagenising' of junctions along Derby Road is coming along, waiting for signage and markings to be applied.

 

 

 

 

We are less happy about this feature which has appeared just north of the Derby Road Toucan crossing. The radii is far too sharp and the length of dropped kerb too short. We are having discussions with DCC!

February Meeting

Our February meeting will take place on Tuesday 14th February, 7.30pm in Chesterfield Community Centre near the coach station.

This meeting will focus on a joint discussion with representatives from CNED Ramblers and Grassland Hasmoor.

All welcome.

Work seems to have finally started building the perimeter bridleway around Peak Resort, incidentally this will link to the planned shared path to Dronfield.
