Tour de Suffolk, by The Rotary Club of Ipswich Wolsey, to run in May from Ipswich Rugby Club in Humber Doucy Lane
A new charity cycle ride supporting two cancer charities will take place in Suffolk this May.
The Tour de Suffolk, organised by The Rotary Club of Ipswich Wolsey, will take place on May 12, with participants able to choose from three different routes.
All three will start from Ipswich Rugby Club, in Humber Doucy Lane, and then weave around the Suffolk countryside at varying lengths; 25 miles, 50 miles and 73 miles.
Funds generated by the event will go towards The Blossom Appeal, which supports the running of the new Breast Cancer Centre at Ipswich Hospital, and Prostate Cancer UK.
Terry Mitchell, from the Rotary Club of Ipswich Wolsey, said: “Suffolk is fantastic for cyclists and we cannot wait to bring Tour De Suffolk to residents across the county.
“As well as experienced cyclists, we are encouraging families to sign up for a fun day out exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside whilst supporting two of our chosen charities.”
As part of the event, participants will have the chance to get pre-ride bicycle checks with on the spot repairs by Elmy Cycles.
Pre-booked tickets are £20 and on-the-day tickets will be £25 each. For under 16s, places are free and they will need to be accompanied by an adult.

The Rotary Club has previously raised money through a bike ride with its Ipswich Cycle Swarm.
