What about using the Cycleway for commuting

Viewed 963 Times

map4The Cycleway will provide for greatly increased commuting from Duffield and Belper into Derby and onwards to Rolls Royce and Infinity Park.

Belper lies just beyond 10km from Derby which is an attractive distance for a regular commute.

The cycleway will provide an alternative route to the currently heavily used A6 which, in many places is not suitable for cycling and is particularly unattractive for family and less confident cyclists. The design goal for the cycleway is for it to be suitable for use by an 8 year old. Providing such a route would greatly increase cycle and walking traffic as well as taking the existing traffic away from the busy roads and thus reducing injuries and fatalities.
