McCall Loves A Challenge

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.

Cyclists participating in the ride 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. The Action DIVA ride offers a choice of routes including a 17-mile, 33-mile and a tougher 63 mile route which will take you through some of the best scenery in Sussex.

"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!" Said McCall. 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.

Entry costs £28 and participants will also need to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship.
