Steve Peat, Downhill World Cup Champion of '02, '04 and '06, was born and raised right here. But unlike most elite sports people who need to move where the action is, he stayed right here because Sheffield has an amazing array of mountain biking right across the city.
From inner city trails at Parkwood Springs which overlook the city centre, to trails and plantations like Lady Cannings out on the city edge, Sheffield is littered with spots. And then of course there's great access out into sections of the Peak District and beyond.
A short video all about biking in and around Sheffield. Feel the hype.
