Your biking stories could star in audio drama

Have your say

Most people remember the first time they rode a bike...

And now Sheffield Hallam University is hoping residents across the city will share their cycling stories for a special project as part of the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire this summer.

People are asked to explain what their cycling journey means to them, whether they pedal through the Peak District to bond with the family or take a regular commute in the city.

Some of the stories will then be turned into an audio drama by Chris Bush, playwright in residence at The Crucible, to be released as podcasts online.

And one will become a piece of live theatre performed by students as the Grand Depart comes to the county.

Sheffield Hallam is an official supporter of the event, which arrives in Sheffield in July as cyclists make their way from York as part of the second stage.
