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.

Chesterfield Cycle Map

Following an application to Chesterfield Borough Council the Campaign has been awarded a grant to help publish a revised and updated cycle map. We have commisioned Sustrans to create and publish 5000 copies which will distributed free of charge.

A small steering group has been formed to coordinate with Sustrans but we need others to help. In particular we need to check cycle parking provision at public buildings, check routes that we are going to put on the map plus other details. The Campaign meetings in January and February 2016 will be mainly devoted to map production.

If you would like to help produce the new map contact the secretary - secretary@chesterfieldcc.org.uk

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 13th October at 7.30pm. At the Chesterfield Community Centre off South Place.
