The Action DIVA series is fronted by our good friend, the TV presenter Davina McCall, who rides the Action DIVA Sussex in May each year. Davina is calling on all you women out there to join the fun and raise as much as you can so we can continue to find and fund the very best medical research to help sick babies and children.
Action DIVA Scotland sets out from the grounds of Tulliallan Castle towards the shoreline of the Forth Estuary. Quiet lanes take you on a journey through the Kingdom of Fife with spectacular Scottish scenery. There are three different circular routes to choose from – 19 miles, 35 miles and 66 miles – something for everyone!
Highlights include the ancient Royal Burgh of Culross with its period houses of different shades that line the partially cobbled streets. The ride around Loch Leven is rewarded with breathtaking views. There will be hills which will test you but nothing too hard. The descents will be a joy to freewheel and give your legs a rest as you crank up the mileage. We’ll support you on the day with refreshments and lots of encouragement to get you to the finish line.
So what are you waiting for? It’s amazing what you can do on a bike!
Davina says: "I've been involved with Action since I was a child and as a recent convert to cycling I can’t think of a better way to support my favourite charity. I hope lots of ladies saddle up and join me for this great fundraiser. It's going to be a fun day out and a great way to help such a special charity raise much-needed funds."
