Have your say on cycle network

1 November 2017

People with an interest in cycling can have their say about our plans for developing a key cycle network throughout the county.

We've drawn-up a map in consultation with cycling groups and the Sustrans charity to show the most important routes which need improving or building to make Derbyshire the most connected county for cycling in England.

Now the public are invited to find out more about the proposals to create a joined-up network for cyclists to use for commuting or leisure, whether they live or work in Derbyshire or visiting for a holiday.

Councillor Trevor Ainsworth, Cabinet Support Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said:

"We're living through a golden age of cycling with more people choosing to get on their bike to travel to work or for leisure − which is great news.

"Cycling is good for your health and better for the environment than travelling by car so we want to encourage more people to do it. That means making sure we've got the infrastructure in place to help cyclists get safely from A to B.

"Now we want to know what people think of the proposed cycling network and tell us whether they would like routes adding, amending or removing altogether."

Anyone wishing to take a look online at the proposed network and comment (opens in a new window) can do so until 24 January 2018.
