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.
The first of this years two Cycle in Style rides will leave from outside the Queen’s Park cafe at 11.00am. The route will be along the station link and Trans Pennine Trail/canal path to Katey’s cafe at the Hollingwood Hub.
All welcome on any bike!
Its the first FNR of 2022 this Friday 6th May. Leaving from the town hall steps at 6.00pm. Theme is the ‘Revolution’ ride. The ride will finish in Old Whittington around 8.00pm.
No need to book, just turn up!
There won’t be a ride in June due to the Jubilee bank holiday so the next ride will be on 1st July, theme ‘The Brampton Branch Line’.
Read our response to the route here. Whilst we welcome the inclusion of a segregated cycle path along the length of the road with links to the canal side path there will be considerable loss of amenity with the proposed road very close to the canal. We think the cycle path crossings at two roundabouts need improvement and extra links need consideration to Barrow Hill and the Hollingwood Hub.
The traffic signals on Markham Road and Park Road are being updated and as part of that scheme a Toucan crossing is being installed on Park Road. where the Hipper Valley Trail crosses.
