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.

To pre-register visit https://stnicholashospice.org.uk/news-community/events-listing/bury-goes-biking/ or register on Angel Hill on Sunday from 10am.

The return of Luke Norris, after injury, has given Colchester United boss John McGreal a pleasant selection headache looking towards this weekend’s long trek up to Cumbria.

Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert is keen to add some Championship experience to his relegation-battling squad as soon as possible in January. In part one of this feature, STUART WATSON looks at some midfielders who fit the bill.

A village road is to be closed for the majority of a day so highways workers can carry out emergency repairs to the carriageway.
