The wonderful Davina McCall hosts this ever popular bike ride through the Sussex countryside

Ride for a reason on this female friendly ride and join our celebrity Ambassador and TV presenter Davina McCall on this bike ride raising funds for sick babies and children. Davina, aka 'Superwoman' will be there, in person to set every rider off on their way, and then she will ride the 67 mile route to try and catch you up! This ride is predominantly female but men are welcome if they can keep up!

Davina’s Big Sussex Bike Ride offers a Cool 21 mile route that is ideal if you’re new to cycling or looking for an early finish! Our Classic 40 mile route is more challenging as is the Champion at 68 miles, ideal if you are a more experienced rider.

The Big Sussex bike Ride is designed and run by Action Medical Research and you'll be raising money to fund the next medical breakthrough that will save and change Little Lives.

This year we have opened up the ride to supporters of  Great Ormond Street Hospital children's charity, as we celebrate working in partnership with the charity to jointly fund over £2m of research. 

Get your photo with Davina at the start and enjoy two well stocked feed stops around the route and a hearty BBQ lunch at the finish for a unique and fabulous day with the lady herself!

"You can always expect a great day in the saddle with Action Medical Research – I know, I’ve cycled with them. Their RIDE100 series has events taking place all over the UK and a range of route distances to suit all cyclists."
Sir Dave Brailsford
