This week’s theme is Pedal Power and our friends at Sheffield City Archives have got in gear to find pictures showing how Sheffield cycles in style.

The photographs include one of Sharrow Cycling Club dating back to the 1890s and another of city Olympic gold medalist Sebastian Coe in 1982, two years after his triumph in Moscow.

Take a look at how styles have changed but the aim remains the same – keep fit and stay on track!
