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 total of 29 riders left the Queen’s Park on May 31st on the second of our family rides. No doubt the numbers were boosted by the good weather compared to our last ride. Our route took us through the centre of Chesterfield, past the railway station and along the Trans Pennine Trail to Tapton Lock where we stopped for flapjack and scones.
