With the Tour de France currently in the headlines, today we are looking back at cycle races around Suffolk over the years.
A cycle race in Felixstowe in 1976 is among the events featured in this gallery. Large numbers of riders joined in, picking up speed as they headed down Bent Hill.
Also fondly remembered is the Ipswich Cycle Race round the town in 1981.
Big crowds turned out to support the event, which featured both professional and amateur cyclists and a range of vehicles, including tricycles.
Also featured are memories of two-wheeled events in Woodbridge in the 1980s and 1990s, and an Essex cycle race in Halstead.
