Pupils from Mildenhall College Academy were able to take part in the Tour of Britain cycle race when it came to Suffolk.
Eight students from year eight and nine took part in the community ride as stage six of the men’s cycle race travelled from Newmarkert to Aldeburgh.
The pupils, selected in recognition of their attainment and attitude to PE, led the community ride in Newmarket alongside students from Newmarket Academy and Newmarket Cycling Club.
The youngsters were able to see the professional riders close up at the event on September 8, before cycling past hundreds of spectators along the town’s high street to the academy.
A number of the students’ family members lined the route to cheer them on.
