The South Downs Tour

Saturday 3rd July 2021 | Fontwell Park Racecourse

Our Tour Series events are 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 of our tour series events is set in the heart of the South Downs AONB which of course means… a few hills.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you on the start line in Fontwell in July.
