Derbyshire County Council has defended a cycle path in Chesterfield, which local cyclists have criticised for being four metres long. They say it is simply a section of a longer cycle lane.
"This is not a four-metre long cycle path - it is part of our Chesterfield town-wide network. The photograph makes it look odd because it is a busy part of town and it is intersected by two road junctions.
We're keen to promote cycling and make our towns accessible to cyclists. This cycle path runs from West Bars, along New Beetwell Street, ending at Park Road. It is a continuation of a longer cycle path from the A61 Derby Road, through the picturesque Queen's Park into the town centre.
Council chiefs in Chesterfield have been left red faced after cyclists criticised a brand-new bike lane - which is just four metres long.
The short cycle lane was painted in Beetwell Street earlier this month and was almost instantly criticised by cyclists in the town.
Bike commuter Will Jones, said: "It makes the council a laughing stock really."Why on earth would anybody need a cycle lane so short? It's stupid."
Cyclist Lisa Jennings, said:
"It's an embarrassment to the town. There are so many dangerous roads which really do need a cycle lane, but don't. So to paint this pathetic little lane is just an insult to cyclists who are forced to use genuinely dangerous roads which still don't have a cycle lane."
Chesterfield were undone by 2 corners in the first half of their Johnstones Paint Trophy final against Peterborough. The Spirites were guilty of missing a number of chances in between Josh McQuoid giving Posh the lead, and Shaun Brisley making it 2. A big 45 minutes awaits for Chesterfield.
