A Big Cycling Weekend in Sheffield

Russell CuttsComment

Big weekend for your diary: Summer has arrived and this weekend is one big one for anyone interested in cycling.

On Saturday 2nd its the Cote de Wincobank Hill climb and community event - this is now an annual event when the infamous Jenkin Road (2014 Tour de France categorised climb) is closed to traffic to allow you and anyone else to ride it at your pace, probably slightly slower than Chris Froome, but only just. Test your mettle on this beast of a hill.

Fun starts at 2pm.

Followed by a whizz into town along the Five Weirs (or Brightside Lane) to Neepsend where we will be at Peddler for well deserved good food and drink.
Fun starts at 2pm

On Sunday 3rd its the Sky Ride returning to Sheffield for the last time? A chance to ride roads in the City Centre traffic free. Look out for our bike racks strategically placed in locations where you can stop and get a coffee and cake. All of us will be riding the route on some of the bikes we sell so if you want to take a look at the bikes tweet us @russ_cycle_shed.
Fun starts at 11am, no need to register just drop onto the route and ride.

Followed by a Shakespeare Play - Much Ado About Nothing in the amphitheatre behind our shop at the Railway Station, we'll be providing bike racks to store your bike during the performance so there is no excuses to ride there after you've done the Sky Ride.
Fun starts at 5pm Bring picnic and a brolly (but only if it rains)

Why not hire one of our bikes to ride around the city this weekend? Its only £10 for Saturday and Sunday.
