The first ever closed road community cycling event in Bury St Edmunds takes place this Sunday.
The free event will offer a unique opportunity for cyclists of all ages and abilities to cycle on traffic free, closed-off roads around the town centre between 10am and 2pm.
It is being made possible through a partnership between Abbeycroft Leisure and Bury St Edmunds Town Council who have provided funding for the event, the Palmer Group and St Nicholas Hospice with support from St Edmundsbury Borough Council, Suffolk County Council, West Suffolk Wheelers and Ashtons Legal.
Participants are encouraged to register in advance, although registration will also be possible on the day.
The proposed route will start on Angel Hill, leading into Bridlewell Lane, along Westgate Street, Whiting Street, Cornhill and Abbeygate Street before finishing back where it started.
The name of the event, Bury Goes Biking, was the idea of eight-year-old Joseph Harden, who is a pupil at the town’s Abbotts Green Primary School.
