The Herd of Sheffield... by bicycle

The Sheffield Herd is a collection of elephant sculptures located around Sheffield which results in the biggest public art event the city has ever seen! 58 uniquely decorated elephant sculptures are scattered around Sheffield’s parks, greeneries and urban go to's. Can you find them all?

Get exploring by bicycle! Russell's Bicycle Shed is going to give you a helping hand on your Elephant journey. We have put together a cycle friendly map which takes in all of the spots on the herd trail. Click here to find out more.

Computer Club x Algorave x Pimoroni

When you think of bicycles you naturally also think electronic music. Obviously. So jump on your bicycle and head down The Plug. A pioneering electronic music event featuring world-renowned local and international artists and makers. Celebrating Sheffield’s heritage as a city of creativity, technology and innovation. Cycle parking is available on Matilda Street but there is also the Station cycle hub a short walk away. More information on the Our Fave Places website.

There are no firm rules

The Site gallery is hosting an interesting two part residency from Anna Chrystal Stephens and Glen Stoker, with their There Are No Firm Rules. Now this is apt for a cycling newsletter as the artists are looking into sustainable ways of living and working. This exhibition will take the shape of two impromptu hands on experiences dictated by input from participants. A site audit and exploration on the 14th followed by a walk and talk reading group on the 18th. Visit their website for more details, advance booking is necessary. In the spirit of sustainability, visit the site gallery by bicycle. The gallery is along cycle friendly Paternoster Row/Brown Street and can be accessed from city centre cycle routes. There is one rack outside Site and another four next door at Workstation.
