Having checked the route, we walked down to the front and positioned ourselves on the grass verge between Aldeburgh and Thorpeness on the coast road. Within about 30 minutes the first vehicles started to come through, the loudspeaker telling us that the lead group of 4 were about 6 minutes ahead of the pack of cyclists.
After another wait with lots of Police vehicles clearing the way, the leaders came by
then a short while later, the pack came past. We'd bet on how long they'd take to go past - I said about 5 seconds, and that was about right, but it was fun to see them all go flying past
and to also see all the accompanying vehicles carrying the backup bikes and spare tyres
