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.
A good turnout of 26 riders this morning. A short 5 mile route dodging the showers!
Completion of the upgrade of this route gets closer! The 5m wide path now has tarmac but still waiting for the final top layer.
Several Campaign members took part in the cycle around the town hall today during the climate protest.
The section of Holmebrook Valley Trail behind the gas holders has been cleared of undergrowth. Hoping for news soon of the station link being cleared too.
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.
