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.
We’re busy planning this years ride on 28th September. Look out for more details very soon! Cycle in Style has its own webpage with more details and photos of previous rides.
Lots of people in town yesterday for the Motorfest with bike parking almost full. Some bicycle interest amongst the displays too!
New data has just been published about bike thefts at all network rail stations. Chesterfield is the 318th busiest station on the network with an annual footfall of 1,859,258. 80 bike parking spaces with 13 bike thefts over the last 3 years reported. 3 in 2016/17, 5 in 2017/18 and 5 in 2018/19.
Occasional research by Campaign members suggests there are between 25 and 35 bikes regular parked at the station on a weekday with more than that being taken on and off trains. A very rough calculation suggests about 1 in 50 people are travelling to or from the station by bike.
The Dr Bike workshop in the Queen’s Park usually has 3 or 4 mechanics who are all members of the Campaign volunteering their time. There are two more to go this year on the first Saturdays of September and October, 9.30am till 1.00pm.
