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.

Friday Night Ride

Good turn out for the August FNR with 9 at the town hall and another 2 joining at Tapton Lock for a trip round the Trans Pennine Trail loop.

2nd/3rd August

In Friday 2nd August there will be a Friday Night Ride leaving from the town hall steps at 6.30pm, finishing at the Lock Keeper pub in Tapton between 8.00 and 8.30pm. Because there is no formal Campaign meeting in August do join the riders in the pub.

Saturday 3rd August is the next date for the Dr Bike workshop in the Queen’s Park north car park, 9.30am until 1.00pm.

August Meeting

We’ve decided not to hold a ‘formal’ August Campaign meeting, instead there will be another Friday Night Ride on 2nd August. Meet at the town hall for a 6.30pm departure.

Rother Washlands Route

Work has started on the Rother Washlands route between Jawbones Hill toucan and Storforth Lane. Notices say that it will be closed from May 13th for 26 weeks.

Once finished the route should be raised to stop it flooding, be a 5 metre wide shared route with a new 5m wide bridge over the river.
