On 7th June riders will cross the start-line of the first NPSCC Tour of the South East, embarking on a 180 mile multi-stage sportive supported by motorcycle outriders, domestiques, soigneurs, mechanics, first aiders and team cars. 

The ride will see seeded groups of cyclists of all abilities snake their way through the beautiful South East countryside on a route put together by experienced event director, James Kemp. The ride is punctuated by the timed climbs of Olympic road race highlight, Box Hill - a testing 2.5km ascent with an average gradient of 5%, and Kidds Hill (aka The Wall) which, although shorter at 1.5km, has a tough average of 7.8%. It promises to be a tough yet spectacular route that will take riders through several picture-postcard landscapes.
