All you need to know about Tour of Cambridgeshire cycle race road closures this weekend – Peterborough Telegraph

Cycling action from the Tour of Cambridgeshire in 2019, the last time the event was held

Residents, businesses and motorists are being warned about a series of road closures that will take place this weekend to allow the Tour of Cambridgeshire cycle event to take place safely.

Thousands of cyclists, of all ages and abilities are expected to take part in the event this weekend. A range of route lengths are in place for people to ride safely on roads with no traffic on them.

The Tour is based at The East of England Showground, with activities taking place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – although road closures are only in place on Saturday and Sunday.

The road closures in place on Saturday (June 11)

On Saturday a number of roads on the 16.4km course around the showground will be closed between 9am and 8pm, with communities in Alwalton, Chesterton, Morborne, Folksworth and Washingley all being affected by the race.

On Sunday, a much larger event is taking place, with a 100 mile course in place. Competitors taking part in the Grand Fondo will have the chance to qualify for the amateur World Cycling Championships with a good performance.

Some road closures will be in place all day, while others will only be needed for a short amount of time.

As on Saturday some roads through Alwalton, Chesterton, Morborne, Folksworth and Washingley will be closed between 9am and 8pm.

The race was first held in 2015, and was an annual event until it was last held in 2019.
