MILDENHALL Cycling Club have published details of their annual cycling festival.

The Mildenhall Cycling Rally, held over the August Bank Holiday from Saturday 23 to Monday 25, will take place at the town's Riverside Middle School.

One of the many appealing facets of this family-orientated event is the onsite camping.

“Demand for these caravan and camp pitches is always high and sell out before the event, so we would encourage anybody wishing to stay on site to book as soon as they can,” explained Mark Burchett, one of the organisers.
