Ipswich Cycling Weekend returns to the town this month with two-wheeled events for everyone.

IPSWICH CYCLE WEEKENDIPSWICH CYCLE WEEKEND

The weekend’s events on August 30 and 31 are supported by Ipswich Borough Council and British Cycling and sponsored by digital marketing agency Crafted.

There is a brand new sportive challenge, a pro cycle race concluding the British Cycling Elite Road Series, and the return of the Sky Ride offering cyclists and families the chance to ride traffic-free routes around the town.

The new Crafted Classique timed sportive – offers a choice of a 100 km or 100 mile route through Suffolk, beginning at Ipswich’s waterfront and heading up the coast to Thorpeness and Aldeburgh on the Heritage Coast (100 mile route).

The route – based on the Ipswich and Coastal Grand Prix that will be ridden by pro teams the following day – then leads back to the waterfront, where riders can dig into a well-deserved Hog Roast from Cult Café, washed down with a refreshing Adnams beer once over the finish line.

The elite race will see national riders and teams take on 200km, also starting and finishing on the waterfront, in the finale of their nine grand prix championship for individual and team glory.

Cycling fans are invited to cheer on the pros as they set off in the morning, and to return to the harbour later in the day to see the victorious cyclist and team crowned.

Once the pros are on the road, Sky Ride Ipswich takes over, giving cyclists and families the chance to enjoy traffic-free, and usually off-limits, routes through the county town. There will be a whole host of activities to enjoy both on and off the bike for all ages and abilities.
