The cycling event Tour Of Sussex begins on Thursday July 4th at 7.30pm on Seaford’s Seafront before moving on to Eastbourne and Ditchling on the 5th and 6th.

Roads on the Seafront will be closed for the event so traffic will be diverted.

This is the first time Seaford have hosted this event and will consist of racing along the flat. Stage one is a fast and technical race suited to heavier riders with more power.

Two corners on this course make for an exhilarating spectacle providing thick rapid action as eighty riders from twenty different teams battle out for this tear’s yellow and blue jerseys.

It is something new for the area so will be most exciting for spectators.
