The event takes place in the heart of the city centre, with early evening activity focused on the Peace Gardens and surrounding area.
The first youth races will start at 5.00pm and the Sheffield Grand Prix will bring the evening to a climax with the countries top male and female professional riders racing around the city centre circuit.
