UK Cycling Events' Tour Series is designed to give you the chance to ride in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK and challenge yourself to distances you wouldn’t do every weekend.
The second race of the tour series events takes place in the heart of the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This means it will be a wonderful day on the bike and it also means there will be a few hills!
