On yer bike! Urban cyclists test the cobbles

Sheffield Urban CX hosted a cycle race in and around Kelham Island Industrial Museum this weekend. The Urban CX race format ‘re-imagines’ spaces in the city and turns them into an arena for riders to test their skills on courses that incorporate unusual features from the urban landscape. Cycling enthusiasts looking for a challenge and a course with a difference tested themselves against the clock. Simon Thake reports for Sheffield Live!
