Woodbridge’s narrow, steep and winding town centre streets could have been built for cycle racing – and for many years the

riverside town hosted an exciting annual event.

With New Street, Church Street, Seckford Street, Market Hill and Theatre Street there are plenty of twists and turns and tests for the legs, as well as downhill stretches for speed to thrill the racers and spectators.

Back in 1993, the event drew large crowds to line the route – with cyclists coming from all over the region, and further afield, to try the challenging course long before the town and county became mainstays in the Women’s Tour and Men’s Tour of

Britain stages.

It provided a packed day of action for all ages and some quality racing for the cyclists involved.
