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 New Year

Our first meeting of the new year will be at 7.30pm, Chesterfield Community Centre on Tuesday 12th Jan.

Most of this meeting will be discussing our new cycle map of Chesterfield. Routes and facilities have been marked on a base map supplied by Sustrans and we need to check this information before sending to the map makers later in the week.

New Chesterfield Cycle Map

Several members have been out checking facilities in Chesterfield and we are now starting to collate the information. Once plotted on a base map the information will be sent off to Sustrans mapping to create our new map. Our January Campaign meeting will be checking the first draft before submission.

The map is funded by Chesterfield Borough Council's 'Community Chest', Derbyshire County Council and the Campaign. 5000 copies will be printed and available free of charge. Hopefully the map will be available around April 2016 just as the new station link opens.

Christmas Social

Thirty people came to our social evening on the 8th December held for the first time at Monkey Park in Brampton. We were entertained by Brampton Community Band and and had a quiz. Monkey Park supplied a lovely buffet too.

 

Small Improvements

The cycle access to the new Queen's Park Sports Centre is taking shape. We are told that the railings will be removed to create a 3m wide path all the way to the raised table across Boythorpe Avenue.

 

 

 

The station link is proceeding well and recently some test piling has taken place next to Hollis Lane ready for the bridge piles to go in later in the project. The path shown curving down to the slip road is for access only, not part of the final route!

 

 

Tesco recently built a path off the A61 cycle path to allow easy access to their store.

Chesterfield Cycle Map

Following an application to Chesterfield Borough Council the Campaign has been awarded a grant to help publish a revised and updated cycle map. We have commisioned Sustrans to create and publish 5000 copies which will distributed free of charge.

A small steering group has been formed to coordinate with Sustrans but we need others to help. In particular we need to check cycle parking provision at public buildings, check routes that we are going to put on the map plus other details. The Campaign meetings in January and February 2016 will be mainly devoted to map production.

If you would like to help produce the new map contact the secretary - secretary@chesterfieldcc.org.uk
