The Tour of Britain returns to Norfolk and Suffolk this Saturday. How will you be celebrating the event?

The 120-strong peloton of riders will set off from Fakenham Racecourse tomorrow at about 10am for a neutralised start, with the race starting properly at Guist.

Approximate timings from then on are: Reepham and Cawston 10.35am to 10.45am; Aylsham 10.50am to 11am; King of the Mountains, between Hevingham and Stratton Strawless on the A140, 10.55am to 11.10am; and Hellesdon 11.10am to 11.25am.

The route will be closed to traffic just before the lead cyclist reaches that point. About 30 police motorbikes will be used to enforce a rolling road closure which will be lifted once the last race support vehicle has passed.

Roads will be closed for up to 20 minutes depending on how spread apart the cyclists are.

The Grapes Hill / Chapelfield Road roundabout in Norwich will be closed for a little longer as the event crosses this junction twice. Wymondham and Attleborough town centres will be closed for about 20 minutes to allow the one-way systems to clear.

Community events are taking place at several points along the route on the day. You can us photos on Twitter using the hashtag #TOBNorfolk
