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 Campaign was contacted at short notice and asked to attend this event in the Queen’s Park, held today, we signed up some new members and gave out cycling information.
Almost 40 people took part in the Family Ride on Saturday 26th July which was a short tour of ‘sustainability’. Cllr Openshaw (a Campaign member) described the salar PV panels on the Queen’s Park Leisure Centre and the heat pump at the Tourist Office. The tour also looked at a ‘living roof’, a derelict waterwheel and a demonstration of scything. Riders enjoyed a fruit smoothie created by pedal power.
A constructive meeting was held between the Campaign and members of DCC today, 30/7/2008 at Brimington Road. Our views were listened to and they will come up with a revised scheme shortly.
