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.

Campaign Publicity

As many of you will be aware the Campaign runs several information stalls throughout the year. We have our main stalls on May Day and during Bike Week but do you know of a smaller event that we could attend?

We now have a 'mini event box' which contains copies of all the maps and leaflets we take along to the bigger events together with a few Campaign mugs and pens. All these are packed into a box not much bigger than a shoe box, so easily carried on a bike. If you know of a local event where you could set up a smaller display contact the Secretary who will arrange for a mini box to be delivered to you.

Spring Newsletter

The Spring 2009 newsletter is at the printers. It should be distributed to the reps this weekend so members should receive the newsletter soon afterwards.
