The Tour of Britain arrives in Sussex today after a pulsating week of racing.

Here are three great plaes to watch it in Brighton.

VELO CAFE The cycling-themed cafe – and meeting place of local cyclists – will be holding special events throughout the day, including smoothie-making sessions and bike races. They will also be showing all the action live on their big screen.

BEAR ROAD Bear Road will provide the final sting in the tail for the longest stage of the race.

Spectators will be able to see the riders up close, slogging it out on the final climb.

After more than 220km, this short sharp incline could decide the stage.

MADEIRA DRIVE Madeira Drive will be the finish straight with the line close to Yellowave.

The road will be packed with stalls, stands and things to do from the morning right through to after the race.


The Argus will have a stand near the finish with plenty of freebies.

We will also be running a cycling competition thanks to the Giant bike store in Shoreham.

If you buy a paper from our stand, you will get a free Tea Pigs energy drink, free puncture repair kit from Giant and a go on the shop’s watt bike.

The top 50 of those who register the highest power output will feature in Monday’s paper.

Brighton cycling clubs will also be running a competition for youngsters prior to the main event with eight separate races from midday.

Age groups, ranging from under-12s to under-16s, will take part.
