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.

Campaign Meeting

Avenue Site

The first path is now open on the Avenue site.

It can be accessed by bike from Ingleton Road/Railway Terrace (not officially a RoW). then crossing over the railway bridge. The path then runs over the dam wall that has been built.

Unfortunately cyclists have to turn round and retrace their steps at the position in the image because the path continues as a very narrow footpath to Derby Road!

June Campaign meeting

Our June meeting will be on Tuesday 12th at 7.30pm in Chesterfield Community Centre. All welcome.

Cycle in Style

Our Cycle in Style ride will take place on Saturday 12th May. We'll depart from the Vintage Tea Rooms on Beetwell St at around 10.30am, do gather beforehand if you would like a drink and chat. 

For this ride we will cycle past the station and along the Stonegravels Way and the old Sheffield Road to the Riverside Garden Centre. After refreshments there will be an opportunity to cycle the new bridleway around Peak Resort.

All welcome, the ride will be at a slow and sociable pace! Click the flyer on the right for more details.
