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.

Please find below links to the agenda and minutes from the March meeting. In particular we are looking for volunteers to help run our stall at various events:
May Day - May 6th - stall in the Winding Wheel and cyclists joining the march from the town hall at 11.00am (a good test of slow riding!).
Hasland Gala - June 9th - if we can get volunteers we will have a stall.
Canal Festival - June 29th/30th - stall.
Inkerman Buzz - July 14th - stall.
In addition we have a ride from Tapton Lock Visitors Centre planned on June 16th, leave at 1.00pm, through Brimington and Inkersall on the Trans Pennine trail and return along the canal stopping at the Hollingwood Hub for refreshments.
Our annual Pea & Pie supper on June 21st, venue tba.
The planning application for Hipper Valley 3, the extension to Holymoorside was due to be discussed last week. We understand that due to a technicality the application was withdrawn at the last minute by DCC. We are awaiting more details but it is unlikely to be discussed now until June due to the County Council elections.
We have just heard that the approach from the railway station to the town centre and Horn's Bridge roundabout have been selected as the two gateways to share a £0.5M enhancement scheme funding.
DCC already have a scheme to raise the railings in the footbridge over the A61 adjacent to the Chesterfield Hotel awaiting approval.
Our monthly meeting will take place on 12th March at 7.00pm in the town hall.
The TPT is to be closed for resurfacing between Tapton Lock Visitors Centre and Station Road from end of February to end of March. In reality the work will probably only take up to two weeks, but the exact start date is unknown. The route is closed for the duration of the work due to the lack of an alternative, this is on safety grounds. The route will be kept open as often as possible at evenings/weekends to try and minimise inconvenience.
Our February meeting will be on Tuesday 12th Feb at 7.00pm in the town hall. Bikes can be left in the foyer.
