Cycling fans in the region are already looking forward to the Tour de France which races through Cambridgeshire next year.
However, there's another treat in store as the first Women's Tour elite race takes place next May.
The event, the first international stage race for women, begins in Oundle in Northamptonshire, with the fourth stage starting in double Olympic gold-winner Laura Trott's home town of Cheshunt in Hertfordshire.
And today it's been announced that the race will finish in Suffolk's Bury St Edmunds on May 11.
