The official Tour of Britain route will pass through Ipswich, and motorcycles mapping out the route have been spotted this week as reported in the Evening Star on Saturday.

Setting off from Bury St Edmunds, the penultimate stage of the tour (Stage 7) will pass through Lavenham, Hadleigh, Ipswich, Helmingham and Diss before heading into Norfolk, finishing at Sandringham.

This exciting spectacle will pass through Ipswich on Saturday September 17th. The route will have the peloton pass down Westerfield Road, past Christchurch Park and then out of town along London Road, finally turning  West towards Hintlesham and beyond.

There is a route map here.
