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.

Showcasing Crow Lane Closure

Staff from the Royal Hospital, campaigners and others met Toby Perkins MP to highlight the closure of Crow Lane to through traffic creating a key worker safe route from the town centre to the hospital.

Crow Lane

Through the Emergency Active Travel Fund Derbyshire County Council have closed Crow Lane to through traffic creating a safer route to cycle to the Royal Hospital. This was one of the suggestions we made in response to the Covid crisis.

The hospital will be introducing an electric bike purchase scheme for staff shortly too.

Cycling Data

We’ve been sent the latest cycling data from the counter on the station link. Cycling journeys are up for the whole of this year compared to last but especially so in the last eight weeks. In the last eight weeks just under 18,000 cycle journeys have been recorded!

Social Distancing Measures

Following the governments announcement of action to be taken to enable more walking and cycling journeys we have submitted a list of measures that could be taken to Derbyshire County Council

Our Campaign has also been discussing with Chesterfield Royal Hospital ideas to help staff cycle to work rather than use cars or public transport.
