Cycling Sheffield has been created to compliment Sheffield’s “Outdoor City” concept and will be sponsored and supported exclusively by Sheffield based businesses and organisations.
The concept of linking a city or region to a cycling team has been used with great success in Europe. With cycling enjoying great public support and unprecedented levels of participation, we’re confident that the same idea can be used here in Sheffield
