Aldeburgh Music and Suffolk Coastal District Council are offering anyone with a bicycle the opportunity to cycle the last kilometre of Stage One of the Aviva Women’s Tour into Aldeburgh on Wednesday 17 June ahead of the elite race.

In return for this fantastic opportunity, you will be required to take part in the Einse Brise for 111 cyclists – a musical piece made using bicycle bells, whistles and noises.

All you need is a bicycle, a helmet, ideally a bell on your bike but we can provide you with one if needed. You don’t need to be a pro cyclist to take part but be able to cycle one kilometre comfortably – the main thing is that you’re up for some fun!

Instructions and a rehearsal will take place on the morning of the race and then you will perform approximately an hour before the finish of the race. We will then cordon off an area for you so you have a good vantage point of for when Stage One races into Aldeburgh from the Thorpeness direction.

Cllr TJ Haworth-Culf with responsibility for Customers, Communities and Leisure, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local people to take part in the Aviva Women’s Tour and I can’t wait to hear how this musical piece will sound on the day. 

“This event is part of a full day of activities in Aldeburgh and is set to create a wonderful atmosphere on the seafront. I hope everyone will enjoy the fun!”
