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.
From our recent AGM we’ve produced a short video showing some of the highlights of the Campaign’s year in 2019.
Our AGM is on Tuesday 12th November. We’ll be electing officers for the coming year. One position that remains vacant is press/social media, we’d be very appreciative of someone coming forward to take on this role.
At the recent Cycle in Style ride a contingent came over from Nottingham so it seems only proper to publicise their ‘Classic Rides’. The next one is on Sunday 3rd November.
Derbyshire County Council recently announced a grant of £1.6M from D2N2 for sustainable transport in the A61 corridor. Details below:
Includes works already carried out on the A61 near Hornsbridge, the Rother Washlands route (On-site), the Whittington Moor to Sheepbridge route, and the first phase roll-out of the Wayfinding scheme. Some of the work has happened already through an advancement of D2N2 LEP grant called pre-compliance funding, and the announcement this week confirms that the programme of measures can now be completed. We hope to be on-site for the Whittington Moor to Sheepbridge route before the end of the year. The wayfinding scheme will be developed further over the next few months.
Derbyshire County Council have closed a section of towpath along Chesterfield Canal just south of Staveley Basin for a stretch of around 500 metres.
A crack has appeared in the path and the route has been closed so that they can investigate. Updates when they have further details.
