Tour de Sussex

First annual “Ellen’s Tour de Sussex” cycling event is welcoming over 200 cycling enthusiasts to the Sussex Region this weekend!
Cyclists will be riding one of three scenic Kings County tours of either 20, 60 or 100km. The routes all start and finish at the 8th Hussars Sports Center beginning at 9am today. Once the ride is complete, the celebration begins at Leonard’s Gate in downtown Sussex around 4.
This event is in memory of Ellen Watter’s, who tragically passed away in December 2016 after being struck by a vehicle while on a training in Sussex. Since then, the Province of New Brunswick has passed “Ellen’s Law”, stating that motorists must give cyclists at least 1 meter when passing.
