If you were wondering what all the cyclists were doing in town on Friday, It was the Deloitte Ride Across Britain. This cycle ride took place over a period of nine days, beginning in Scotland, and finishing with a party in Cornwall and the route was ridden by hundreds of cyclists in nine stages. It was Stage Seven - Ludlow to Cheddar which took place on Friday, the undulating ride, which encountered three British rivers, including the River Wye, bringing the riders through the town of Ross throughout the morning.

The cyclists first began arriving in Ross at about 10.30, meeting with heavy traffic caused by the Rosswyn Bottleneck. Small groups of riders rode along Cantilupe Road, Gloucester Road, and High Street, heading towards Walford throughout the morning - many of them stopping for refreshments at Costa Coffee. Below you can see photographs of some of the larger groups passing through town.
