It comes as no surprise to us to learn that more women than ever are getting hooked on road cycling as one of the best ways to get fit and stay in shape.  Action DIVA is a cycle ride just for the girls and Davina wants as many as possible to join her.


Each Action DIVA ride offers a choice of routes, for Sussex this includes a 17 mile route, 33 mile route and a tougher 63 mile route which will take you through some of the best scenery in Sussex.  So, whatever your level of fitness, there is a ride for you at each of the three venues.


“It’s a beautiful route through some of the most amazing Sussex countryside. Women of all shapes and sizes and abilities take part, and Action Medical Research provide great support for all riders – so don’t be scared ladies, it’s amazing what you can do on a bike!” says Davina.


The ride, supported by leading bike brand Trek, includes plenty of rest stops and a fully-serviced lunch.  Staff riders, first aiders and massage therapists will also be on hand.


Davina says: “What better way to motivate yourself to get and stay fit than to sign up for this brilliant bike ride.  By doing so, you lovely ladies will be able to raise some dosh for the most amazing charity – thank you.”


Cyclists participating in the ride will raise money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children.  Davina McCall is calling on all women to join the fun and raise a huge amount to help children’s charity Action Medical Research.


Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952. The charity is currently supporting work around Down syndrome, epilepsy, sickle cell disease and diabetes, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.


Entry costs £28 and participants will also need to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship. Will you take the 2013 Action DIVA challenge and sign up now to join Davina? Sign up now at
