The Campaign maintains a stock of cycle maps for many of the local areas around Chesterfield, contact the secretary if you would like any of them. We usually have maps for Derby, Sheffield, Nottingham - South and North, Mansfield area and some more distant places. Cheltenham was the first town to produce a new kind of cycle map - one which grades every road according to how cycle friendly it is. The Warrington map has been produced in this way, an online version is available here. Is this a better map than the traditional cycle map?
