Classic Sussex climbs to be relished in rides remembering 'Big Tim'

Tim Stevens

Big Tim’s Big Day Out, taking place on Sunday September 1, is a sportive in memory of former Great Britain rider and time trial ace Tim Stevens, who was a well-known and well-loved figure in the south-east cycling scene.

Stevens, who died in 2016 aged 55 after he was diagnosed with bowel cancer, was treated at the Royal Marsden’s cancer hospital. Last year’s event raised over £3,000 for the charity. Stevens’s wife Jenni, who was also treated by the Royal Marsden, and his friends who organise the event each year, are inviting you to come and do it all over again.
