About this event

Speaker: Simon Choppin - Sheffield Hallam University Sports Science Department

Simple, elegant and efficient, the bicycle is a technology which brought liberty to millions. It wasn't long before bicycles were being used to test strength, skill and endurance of athletes in a plethora of disciplines. As technology progressed and understanding increased, extraordinary feats of athleticism followed. This lecture discusses the technology and science of bicycles, outlining some of the advances which have pushed on human achievement through time.
This prestige lecture will serve as an appetiser to the forthcoming Tour De France in Yorkshire.
