Ixworth Cycle Races
West Suffolk Wheelers promote an eight race criterium programme in the picturesque village of Ixworth on the May Day Bank Holiday Monday. Ixworth is located 3 miles North of Bury St Edmunds on the A143. The course is on a closed road circuit which offers spectators the opportunity to see close up many of the UK’s finest riders battle out for top honours.
East Anglia’s premier day of circuit races are aimed at riders of all ages and abilities. The May Day Ixworth Cycle Races have consistently produced fast exciting racing and close finishes, often with the need for a photo to decide the places. The demanding 900m circuit, in the heart of the village of Ixworth, is good test of rider abilities. Race winners will need to have good speed, backed up by excellent bike handling skills and the desire to be the first over the line. This is very evident in the children’s races, which often produces the most competitive races and the most enthusiastic crowd of spectators and Mums & Dads.
