This weeks Sheffield city discoveries

Russell CuttsComment

We're like more modern (if not drastically less ambitious) versions of Sir Edmund Hillary over here at Russell's Bicycle Shed. We've been out exploring by bicycle again, with the aim to #discoveryourcity. A brief snippet of our explorations awaits.

A top spot of snicket snapping here. The exact identity of this one is to remain a secret. If you know where it is then, well, aren't you clever.

So this one isn't exactly a secret. It's one of the most iconic structures in Sheffield. The brutalist and ambitious housing project can be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city. I (Adam) however, had personally never been to see the building up close. So I jumped on the bicycle and took a spin to check out the towers and the view out over the city.

Finally, I've always had a soft spot for street art and David Attenborough. Therefore, this discovery obviously blew my socks off. A detour to the train station revealed this cracking bit spray paint-ery. I've heard Charles Darwin is out there somewhere too, he'll be next on the tick list.

Don't forget to send in your findings from sunny Sheffield. Get on your bicycle, get exploring and #discoveryourcity.
