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.

Christmas Social

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.

September Cycle in Style ride

Twenty one riders came along to Cycle in Style on September 29th. Vintage Tea Rooms provided free tea before the start. After departure shortly after 10.30 the ride finished at the Urban Kitchen on Brimington Road after completing about 5 miles.

We'll hopefully organise another couple of rides in 2019.
