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.

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 spokesman said riders would complete two laps of the course “which is anticipated to take no more than 30 minutes”.

The restrictions take effect tomorrow at 10am.

Racing will take place between 7am and 6pm in and around the City of Hamilton.
