Urban cycling fans are taking part in a spectacular two-wheeled show at the Piece Hall today
The Morvelo Cyclo Cross has taken over the town centre venue with a series of knock out rounds for cyclists of all ages before a floodlit finale.
In the morning there has been races for under 8s, under 10s, under 12s, Youth & Junior, while this afternoon there is Women, Novice, Senior men and V40 men races.
Emma Osenton, from Pennine Prospects, who has helped organise the event, said: “We ran the inaugural event at Shroggs Tip in March.
“The buzz was amazing, people came from all over the country to race.
“But this has never happened in a grade one listed building in the UK.
“Cyclists will get to race over a scaffold bridge, hurdles, sand, the stage itself and a spiral of doom.
“Then the finals will run down the colonnade with all the flood lights on before rejoining the original race route.”
