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.

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.

Derby Road Shared Path

When the Derby Road shared path was completed we had several reservations especially about the crossings of Redvers Buller Road and Lord Roberts road. We met DCC officers on site with our suggestions and are pleased to say they have now been implemented

The path next to St John's building has been widened and similar markings put across their entrance too.

We hope you are aware that Derbyshire County Council officers are trying to build a shared path between Unstone Green and Dronfield. This path joins up to the new bridleway around Peak Resort which will eventually lead to a new cycle path from Peak Resort to Whittington Moor roundabout and the Chesterfield Cycle Network.

The route is being opposed by Councillor Alex Dale, Conservative lead member for young people.

The shared path will create a wider footway and closed off side road between Unstone Green and Unstone Junior school.

North Derbyshire Conservatives are conducting an on line survey. We are asking as many people as possible to fill in the survey in support of the route:

You may be interested to know that £750,000.00 has been allocated to the project by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership. If the route doesn't go ahead the money will have to be repaid, it cannot be used elsewhere.
