Our Action DIVA charity bike ride in the Chilterns is calling all women to join the fun and take on this fabulous road cycling experience to help raise funds for sick babies and children. We’re passionate about cycling and thousands of cyclists return year after year to take part in our expertly delivered charity rides. We know that undertaking your first distance ride can be a nerve-racking experience so that is why we’ve created Action DIVA, a wonderful 42 mile route which will be taking place on the same day as our well established Chiltern Challenge100 event.
The Chiltern Challenge100 offers a number of route options but if you are new to cycling then we recommend this 42 mile option which explores the quaint villages of the Chilterns taking in the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. We promise you a great day in the saddle and our friendly team will be on hand to look after you.
We want to gather as many DIVA riders as possible for a special women-only send off on the 42 mile route. This is still a tough challenge so get your girl friends on board, sign up early and plan your training.
If you are a more experienced rider then Chiltern Challenge100 event also offers a Classic 72 mile route or the more challenging Champion route at 103 miles! If you feel up for the challenge then please join us. The longer distances will not have dedicated women-only start times – but we will still treat you like a lady!
"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."

Robbie was born with a cleft palate and, even after surgery and speech and language therapy, his speech can be difficult to understand. “Older children ask, ‘Why do you talk funny?’ and that’s hard for a teenager to deal with,” says his mum Geraldine.
