Paralympic star Jody Cundy will join Dame Sarah Storey in Endcliffe Park at 11am on Sunday to mark the start of the free annual cycling festival.

Like his Great Britain Cycling Team mate Dame Sarah, Jody started his sporting life in the pool, winning 23 international medals in a 10-year swimming career before switching to cycling in 2006.

Starting in the park, the 6.5km course takes participants past landmarks including Sheffield Botanical Gardens towards The Crucible, before looping back towards the park via Sharrow Road.

The event will finish around 3pm, with a shorter loop on offer for those looking for a different circuit to tackle, riders are invited to cycle the course as many – or as few – times as they wish, and at their own pace.
