London to Paris - 25 July 2018

Join the original and best London to Paris Bike Ride – Action have been running this event for over 18 years taking more than 5000 cyclists to Paris.

In 2018 we’ll be riding a particularly special route though Dunkirk, Cambrai and Soissons. Kicking off in London we’ll ride along the rolling fields and villages of rural Kent, passing orchards and traditional oast houses and tackling the North Downs before taking the ferry from Dover to Dunkirk. In France we’ll head South through small villages and farmland which saw a great deal of action in WW1. You’ll notice the Flemish influence in the region as it used to be part of Flanders. Day 2 finishes in Cambrai, a town which dates back to Roman times.

Trek The Night - South Downs Way - 14 July 2018

It’s midnight. Most people are asleep. But not you.

You’ve got a map, a torch, some hiking shoes and you’re ready to do battle. Ready to face the ultimate challenge. The challenge that will try to break you.

Trek the Night is a gruelling 40 mile midnight hike that will push you to your limits. Think you can walk? Think again. This endurance challenge is tough, muddy, painful and a hell of a lot of fun.

Perfect for team bonding or for taking on your very own personal challenge. Walk it solo or with your friends, colleagues or family.

You’ll need stamina and determination to get you through but once you’ve hit the finish line the sense of accomplishment is unbeatable.
