Derby Cycling Group campaigns on behalf of cyclists in and around Derby, has been in existence since 1979 and currently has around 400 members. We want a city where people of all ages and abilities have the freedom to get around by bike.
Derby City Council are currently gathering feedback on their plans for cycle facilities in the Abbey Street area (deadline of 1st Dec). See here for more information on the plans and how to comment.
Our aim is to ‘make cycling normal’ by advocating for improvements to Derby’s cycling infrastructure. We hope this will encourage more people to cycle for work and pleasure, leading to fewer cars on the city’s roads, less congestion and a safer environment for all.
- We are heavily involved in transport consultation
- We liaise with the City Council, the County Council, and environmental and cycling organisations, both local and national
- We promote cycling at the city’s festivals and other public events
- We help to organise cycle rides
The Group consists entirely of volunteers. Extra assistance is always welcomed.
All members are invited to the monthly meeting held on the first Tuesday of the month (7:30pm) upstairs at the Golden Eagle pub.
