Photos of the women's race passing along Woodbridge road in Ipswich. Was great to be able to see the first women's race and see so many people out supporting the race despite the odd spot of rain.

So when The Women’s Tour passed through Felixstowe, Ipswich and Manningtree on Friday enroute to Clacton, our iwitness members were ready and waiting to capture this sporting spectacle.

See our gallery, top right, for the latest photos from our community of photographers.

John Osborne was at The Strand, in Wherstead to see the riders, while Sarah Kilshaw waited in Norwich Road and captured the riders coming one way while the everyday traffic passed by in the opposite direction.

Today the race travels from Dovercourt to Bury St Edmunds - 108km journey that will mark the end of five days of racing.
