space_for_cyclingDerby Cycling Group have had enough of city council departments and new projects failing to deliver even the most basic facilities for cyclists. Our Space for Cycling campaign wants to get Derby City Councillors to recognise…

  • The benefits that cycling can bring to Derby and it’s citizens,
  • That much more must be done to make cycling a really attractive means of transport for everyone in the city
  • To create policies that will deliver a cycle network worthy of the name.
  • To get the city council to deliver real changes to enable more people to cycle more often and more safely

You can help in this campaign by writing to, e-mailing, phoning and talking to your local councillors and making the case for more Space for Cycling.

The materials below are there to inform and assist you with your own campaigning in order to help us to achieve these goals:

PRESENTATION to PARTY LEADERS: We invited the leaders of the four political parties on Derby City Council to face to face meetings with us so we could present to them the issues facing cyclists in Derby, how we think these can be overcome and the benefits for councillors from supporting our campaign. See for yourself what we said by watching
