About 100 cyclists under police escort will have a “familiarisation ride” tomorrow morning before of the men’s and women’s elite races on Saturday.
A police spokesman said that officers would “assist with traffic management to facilitate”.
The riders will set off from the docks on Front Street towards North Roundabout.
They will then head up Corkscrew Hill onto Middle Road continuing west onto Reid Street.
The group will then head down Queen Street onto Front Street and continue along Pitts Bay Road before turning around at Woodbourne Avenue and heading back along Pitts Bay Road to Front Street.

The restrictions take effect tomorrow at 10am.
