The Tour of Cambridgeshire is set to return this weekend, with more than 8,000 cyclists signed up for the festival.

Making its way through the Cambridgeshire countryside, the tour will consist of three routes for its two events – the Chrono and Gran Fondo – with road closures scheduled throughout the weekend.

The Chrono event, on June 4, is a sporting circuit spanning 16.5 miles.

Roads in Haddon, Morborne, Folksworth, and Caldecote will be affected and are scheduled to be closed between 9.30am and 8pm.

The Gran Fondo, on June 5, is made up of two courses and will involve some 8,000 riders.

Split into 12 sectors, highways near Caldecote, Alconbury, Upwood, Ramsey, Benwick and Yaxley will have restrictions in place.
