Towns to host major cycling races

Three towns in our region are preparing to host major cycling races in the next few weeks.

Aylsham in Norfolk, along with Ipswich and Colchester are among the eleven places across the country chosen to host the Tour Series in June.

Ten teams of cyclists will be battling it out for the title, with crowds of spectators expected to turn out to watch the sport, which has benifitted from a big rise in popularity in recent years.
