The Tour of Cambridgeshire – Britain’s largest closed roads cycling event open to cyclists of all ability - starts in Peterborough this weekend.
During the events on Saturday (1 June) and Sunday (2 June) a number of road closures will be in place in Peterborough, Huntingdonshire and Fenland for the safety of participants, spectators and members of the public alike.
On Saturday the event starts at 9am in Peterborough and will affect the A605 Oundle Road, Bullock Road, Morbourne Road, Manor Road, Washingley Road and Washingley Lane.
On Sunday the event will affect roads in Peterborough, before it moves through to Folksworth, Alconbury, around Ramsey, Whittlesey, Yaxley and finishes back in Peterborough. The extended route for this year’s edition will also go through Old Weston, Leighton Bromswold and Buckworth as well as Alconbury Weald Airfield (north of Little Stuckley).
Road closures will start at 8am and the last one is expected to be lifted by 8.15pm. The route is split into 13 sectors and each will have individual closure times. Roads will systematically reopen after the rear safety car has passed and it is safe to do so.
