QUICKFIRE INTERVIEWS:

Lockdown has affected many businesses in the last few months, and in lots of different ways. We've been reaching out to some of our customers to see how they have fared through the pandemic, and what there plans are for the future. 


We sat down (metaphorically) with Dave Coulson at Cycling Sheffield to ask how life is treating them and how they have coped in recent months...


Coffeecups:

We’re into third week in July – where would the Cycling Sheffield team have been racing this week, if not for COVID-19? 


Cycling Sheffield:

HSBC BC RYEDALE GP in North Yorkshire. 


CC:

How do you train effectively without a confirmed return to racing? 


CS:

Our riders are simply focused on getting stronger for 2021.


CC:

Now restrictions have eased, are you able to resume normal training? What are you still doing differently? 


CS:

We have done a few team rides. We still aren't travelling anywhere together and we are still using Zoom a lot...


CC:

What innovations have you implemented since lockdown began?


CS:

Veloviewer recently became a sponsor, so we are beginning to use the digital wizardry they provide.


CC:

Are there any positive aspects/silver linings to lockdown?


CS:

Definitely. The lack of racing has meant our riders can train very effectively without the need to recover and freshen up post and pre-race. All the lads have recorded new PB power numbers.


CC:

Sheffield has a vibrant coffee scene – which coffeeshops feature regularly on your training routes?


CS:

I often stop at Colemans Deli in Hathersage, mainly due to location. Also Gaard at Kelham on the way out to Bradfield from my side of town.


CC: 

As an ex-Rider, yourself, we’re assuming you enjoy a coffee – what’s your favourite?


CS:

I think Columbian, although at home it’s typically Lavazza.


CC:

Finally, what’s your favourite local climb?!


CS:

Tricky with so many to choose from. Probably Surprise. I raced up and down it when I was really young and it was like my Alpe D'Huez.
