Keep your eyes on this page for news and updates about the 2015 date that we are close to confirming. 

Ride for a reason and join our celebrity Ambassador and TV presenter Davina McCall on this bike ride raising funds for sick babies and children. You'll ride out from the tranquil grounds of the East Sussex National Hotel on this bike ride and then quickly descend into the quiet lanes of the surrounding area. Davina, aka 'Superwoman' will be there, in person, to set every rider off on their way, and then she will ride herself the 67mile route to try and catch you up! 

Formerly only open to women, Davina’s DIVA now has a special limited number of places for men to enter so grab your place now!

Davina’s DIVA offers a Cool 21 mile route that is ideal if you’re new to cycling or looking for an early finish!  Our Classic 31 mile route is more challenging as is the Champion at 67 miles, ideal if you are a more experienced rider.

Expect a great day in the saddle with the Action Medical Research team on this cycling event with first class support throughout the day.

DIVA@ NEW for 2014 - The Davina's DIVA Sussex includes our special promotion to get more women cycling. If you are new to cycling then there will be a route to suit you. Tick the I’m a DIVA' box when you enter.

"I've been involved with Action since I was a child and as a recent convert to road cycling I can’t think of a better way to support my favourite charity. It's going to be a fun day out and a great way to help such a special charity raise much-needed funds."
Davina McCall

Luke's story

Auditory processing disorder (APD)

Luke dribbled a lot as a baby, didn't babble and at two spoke just 10 proper recognisable words. This was the start of a 10 year battle as he struggled to make sense of what he was able to hear, had difficulties with speech and his self-confidence and education suffered.
