On Sunday 9th September the first stage of the 2012 Tour of Britain cycle race will be making its way through Lowestoft. The riders will travel from Ipswich to the Norfolk Showground via Lowestoft.

Each year some of Britain's top cyclists compete in the Tour of Britain which is the UK's biggest professional bicycle race.

This is your chance to catch a glimpse of Britain's up and coming future champions. In previous years the tour has seen names such as Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish competing in the race.

At approximately 12:03 the first riders should arrive into Kessingland, along the A12, heading through Kessingland High Street. The riders will then continue along the A12 onto London Road, Pakefield and into London Road South, Lowestoft. Continuing over Lowestoft Bascule Bridge at approximately 12:12.

The riders will then head past Lowestoft train station, up Katwijk Way. Turning into St. Peters Street, on to Boston Road until continuing on to Oulton Road.

From here the race will continue along Millennium Way, turning into Somerleyton Road, heading over the roundabout into Hall Lane. Then on to Flixton Road, where the race will head into Lound, with the first riders arriving here at approximately 12:24. The race will then head out of Lowestoft.

We hope as many of you will come and cheer on the riders and show your support along the route through Lowestoft.
