Sir Bradley Wiggins will lead Team Sky when Britain’s biggest cycle race passes through Surrey on Saturday morning.

The Friends Life Tour of Britain’s seventh stage, which starts in Camberley and goes through Puttenham and Haslemere, will use around 20 miles of Surrey’s roads before heading to the finish in Brighton.

A six-figure crowd is expected to watch the stage, which starts at 10am and will be in the county for around an hour before crossing the Sussex border.

Former Tour de France winner Sir Bradley will be racing alongside over 100 other elite riders, including fellow British cycling star and former world champion Mark Cavendish.

Most roads will only be closed for a short time while the cyclists and support vehicles pass through. However, two roads around the start line will be closed for longer. Information can be found on Surrey Heath Borough Council’s website.

Organisers distributed around 5,000 advance newsletters to every home and business lining the route giving information on rolling road closures, public transport access and tips for businesses.
