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 have received plans from Derbyshire County Council for this link along the A61 corridor as part of their plan to link Dronfield to Clay Cross with a cycle route. Unfortunately it is a bit of a compromise from what was originally proposed which was to continue alongside the A61 north of Whittington Moor roundabout. Land and services issues made that option very difficult so this is the alternative. It will at least see a cycle route running past the Dunston Innovation Centre which during a meeting with DCC on site we noted several cyclists using! The plan shown here is the overall plan, we do have more detailed sections.
Our long standing membership secretary Pam (ably assisted by Barry) have retired from that post.
Our chair Chris thanked them both for their work over the years on behalf of all the members.
Quite a few bike thefts from sheds and garages being reported in the last few days in the Brampton/Somersall area.
There has been advertising for two sponsored rides on the 14th & 15th September. Unfortunately due to lack of numbers they have been cancelled by Ashgate Hospice.
We’ve just received the details of the latest available cycle count on the railway station link route – you may have noticed the cycle counter near the station end?
