Forecast changed a lot now....for the better. bit of rain early hours, 5am to 8am, according to the Met Office website but then dry and by the time they come back into Chesterfield later on in the race it will actually be quite nice and warm. Good old English Weather!!

Sounds promising then - but happened today???
It was supposed to be a dry day - and I had washing out - it rained  :(

Who has paid for the Pink Cycles which are around Chesterfield?

I agree the clubs shouldn't need to inform people, for some reason some don't seem to. bother reading the signs which are put up! If the matches are disrupted so be it.
Maybe if they changed the colour of the signs people would take more notice -  ::)

Many will be put out by the event bransoj, even though there are signs around and large enough to see. The best way is for organisers to let teams know so they can set out early enough.
Good luck with your match  :)

In answer to your question I think only doing what they are already doing scimitar.
Using knives and vehicles is a cunning way of killing or injuring people, maybe not so much as on a large scale with a bomb but even one life lost or injured is too many.
I'm supposing they have 'moles' who infiltrate these groups but having seen a documentary on this it is really hard to do as people need to be radicalized and I suppose have proof.

I don't think you are racist at all and many think the way you do, in part I agree but also think this is a very complex job as many are genuine.

I can only say - get to the people who are radicalizing - wipe them out including on the internet.

One tough job!

This is worth keeping in mind if you are out and about on these dates - June 3rd and 10th.

The world's top women cyclists will race through Derbyshire on Saturday 10 June 2017, starting in Chesterfield and taking in many of the county's best-known market towns and landmarks before returning to Chesterfield for the finish.

The race starts at 10.30am in Chesterfield and the estimated times of arrival (ETAs) for the major towns are:

Wirksworth 11.15am
Belper 11.55am
Tibshelf 12.30pm
Bolsover 12.50pm
Staveley 1pm
Chesterfield 1.50pm.
Race highlights include:

Queen of the Mountains:
Middleton Top, 11.25am
Crich, 12.20pm
Belper, noon
Staveley, 1.30pm.

The women's cycle network, Breeze, is organising a mini-tour of Chesterfield on Saturday 3 June 2017, leaving outside the Town Hall, Rose Hill at 10am. The course is five miles long and is suitable for women riders of all abilities.

Councillor Spencer added:

"I'm really pleased we've been able to bring the Women's Tour to Derbyshire again. Thousands of people turned out to watch last year's race and this year's promises to be even bigger and better."

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council's deputy leader, said:

"The Women's Tour is set to be a fantastic event and we're encouraging people to come along and cheer the riders as well as take part in the activities in Chesterfield town centre.

"It will be a great opportunity for families to have fun together, see their cycling heroes and find out more about cycling and fitness for themselves."

I don't want to make you sound silly but Bransons have been defunct for at least 20 years and more. They were the posh ones I seem to remember as a kid - or I thought they were posh.
Lovely coaches clean and modern or so it seemed at the time to me as a kid.
Sadly missed :(

Not at all scimitar I didn't know they had gone - haven't used coaches for years so well out of touch with who is around or not.
Who if anyone provides the coach trips these days ?

Chesterfield Discussion / Gala Heritage Event

I've spent today manning our local history stall in Kenning Park in Clay Cross.
It was a small event but very interesting and family orientated also well supported.
It was based on the life of George Kenning who was from Clay Cross and of course the founder of Kenning's Cars.

I'm hoping this group will put on another event maybe next year and again make it something we can relate to in our area. (y)

As children we thought we were on holiday if we were taken to the Queens Park   or Matlock :) How times have changed!
Do Bransons still take day trips?

Bill my uncle was having an 'off day' yesterday and I couldn't get him focused.
He was back 'in the pit and working at the maypole days' of his youth, storied I know word for word.  :)

I'll get there though  ;)

Possibly a bit of both Bill, I doubt many would follow that rule these days when things seem more relaxed about issues such as this.
