A Derwent Valley Cycleway Working Group has been set up by the Derwent Valley Trust. (A charitable trust that established the walking route along the whole length of the Derwent Valley)
The Group, amongst others, includes representatives of:
- local councils
- Derwent Valley Mills World heritage Site
- local cycling organisations
- local businesses
In addition, a great effort has been made to keep interested organisations informed of progress and to gain their support for the project.
