For the very first time, the Tour of Britain Cycle Race will go through the centre of Stradbroke. On September 8th the sixth leg of the race will start in Newmarket at 10:30am and finish in Aldeburgh. The cyclists enter the village via New St and then pass along Church St and the Laxfield Rd. There will be a slendid opportunity to see the riders speed through the village sometime after mid-day. This is a great first for Stradbroke and no doubt there will be  a huge crowd of enthusiastic spectators cheering the riders on.
