Black Sheep: The Hidden Benefits of Being Bad - 26 Oct - 6:30pm - Sheffield Library

This recommendation is a bit left of field but it sounds interesting... 

"Dr Richard Stephens casts a slant on a range of human experiences from life to death, sex to romance, from speed thrills to halting boredom and from drinking alcohol (in moderation) to headily excessive bad language. This is a fascinating left-field tour of the world of psychological science. Get ready for the many hidden benefits of being bad that you really won't have seen coming."

The Climbing Works - Little London Road, Sheffield

Proper winter training.

Proper winter training.

Just in case you haven't noticed, Autumn is now in full flow. The tree's are getting their annual hair cuts ready Christmas, umbrellas are emerging for their summer hibernation and our motivation for cycling is being carried away on the chilly winds. Giving up the sporty side of cycling throughout winter is understandable. If you want to keep in shape and stay warm though, indoor climbing is a good option. Sheffield is spoilt with climbing centres, our favourite is Climbing Works on Little London Road though. Well worth a visit.
