Away from work…
Dr Sharpe is an enthusiatic road cyclist and spends his time enjoying the fabulous cycling opportunities of the Yorkshire Dales. During summer he enjoys modest success as a club-level time trial-list, something which has led to him developing a cameo interest in exercise physiology.
