Derby Cycling Group campaigns on behalf of all cyclists

OUR VISION & MISSION

A city where everyone wants to cycle and everyone can

Current Campaigns

International Women’s Day 2020

According to Love to Ride’s 2019 Cycle September report, in Derby just 22% of participants were female compared to a national average of 50%. Our own committee currently has no female representation.

A small group of us at DCG want to change this and support, encourage and empower more girls and women to cycle in 2020, and beyond.

In light of the tragic death of a young female cyclist on Tuesday 21st January 2020 in Derby, this campaign has been temporarily postponed as a mark of respect.

A38 Junctions

The planned work to replace the A38 roundabouts with flyovers will cause massive congestion for the 3 years of development. We’ve been talking with Highways England and others about how to ensure good quality cycle facilities in the finished project and also how best to encourage people to cycle during the years of traffic congestion.

Air Quality

Derby City Council have addressed air quality issues by removing cycle facilities. We’ve been campaigning against this locally and nationally.
