Link to the left to the canal route in south Derby

Derby has made the entire city centre a no-pavement-parking zone since 2015. The council believes it to be successful with less pedestrian complaints, and are considering expanding it to other areas of the city.

Cycle parking inside Derby station on platform 1b, 25 stands (50 spaces)

Secure cycle parking at Derby station, accessed using key-fobs which are available for a one-off 'nominal' fee HT … [more]

Comfortably spaced, double cycle parking outside Derby Station, next to bus interchange

A junction with a speed table to reduce traffic speed coming up to the cycle crossing. Makes crossing a lot safer and easier, especially for children frequenting the school on the left.

Derby Canal Path, seen here at a 3-way cycle junction.

A reasonable shared-use path along pride park (except for its interfaces with roundabouts) provides decent separation and width to allow safe travel on bicycles.

A nice wide shared-use path running alongside Derby College, providing bicycle access to students and staff.

The Great Northern Greenway - a fantastic greenway linking Derby and Breadsall at current, with plans existing to extend it to Ilkeston.

An underpass allowing this cycle path to link up with Derby on the other side of the A61 conveniently. Could improve by linking the other side of the bridge to the cycle network, as it currently just joins onto a road.

A cycle path in Race Course Park, allowing cyclists to cycle through a green space free of cars. The cycle path does not run along the east side of the park, however, and could do to increase access to streets and houses.

A 1-way road enables the construction of a reasonable off-road cycle path. Ideally, this road would be removed altogether due to Brian Clough Way running parallel to it, and currently the cycle section of this path is quite small.

Cycle path parallel yet significantly offset (behind trees / noise barrier) to Brian Clough Way. Connects to houses and schools, allowing access for all.

A cycle path through a park forming part of the cycle route from Chellaston to Elvaston, with a play area in the middle.

A huge BMX track in Alvaston park - not infrastructure yet a nice "diversion" perhaps on the daily commute! The cycle path to the right of the picture connects to various locations in Derby.

Great park with access for cycles. If you look at the map, a minor road exists off oaklands avenue near to the bottom-right of this park. This is planned to connect to the park in the near future, allowing cyclists to avoid a tiring climb … [more]

Road markings and reduced with encourage cars to slow down at this crossing point, and visibility for those crossing is excellent, allowing them to see and be seen by oncoming traffic from a long distance away. Only gripe is that this is a … [more]

A cycle route that goes all around and through Heatherton. Generally quite good connecting to residential areas, schools and green spaces with minimum fuss. Could do with more connectivity outside of the village though.

An example of filtered permeability - this, in addition to others in the area, separates streets that would have significant rat-run potential.

A green space with shared-use paths throughout & plenty of direct connections to nearby residential areas. Even a small forest with evidence of some mountain biking taking place can be seen - something for every cyclist!

A bridge that, instead of having 2 lanes of traffic and a miniscule footpath, has traffic-light controlled traffic going either way, and a protected foot / cycle path. Improvements: Area is a little too small for the pedestrian / cycle … [more]

Lovely cycle route connecting Chellaston and Sinfin. Only downside is a section in the middle that is used very rarely by farm vehicles - it's a poor surface and covered in potholes.

This minor road used to be a cycle path running along raynesway, giving priority to traffic travelling at 50 mph, without any separation, exposing cyclists to noise / air pollution, and junction crossing dangers. Now, this has been … [more]

Physically separated 2-way cycle lane connecting to a crossing point, allowing for easy bridge crossing by cyclists.

Example of filtered permeability in Derby, reducing traffic around areas that are close to green spaces & cycle routes.

Scenic, wide, open shared-use path in Darley Playing Fields. Wonderful green space to ride through. Thankfully, work has started to improve this path, with a combined £160k of funding from Derby Council & Sustrans!

The cycle path under Raynesway last year - practically a swimming pool!
