Then cycle as far as you can in 24-hours in a team of four, or solo, however you like!

Sign up for the Action RIDE24, now in its fifth successful year, and ride the famous Thruxton Motor Circuit It's the ultimate thigh-busting, stamina draining, 24-hour, non-stop relay racing, spectacular. 

Team entries Push yourself and your teammates to the limit, while helping to fund vital medical research for sick babies and children. It's all about strategy and team work and the team completing the most laps in 24 hours wins the coveted RIDE24 team winners title as well as earning the opportunity to represent Action at Europe's biggest 24-hour track race, the Bugatti Le Mans 24-hour Velo Race in August 2015.

Eva's story


Life is challenging for little Eva who has a rare condition known as ataxia. She has problems with strength, balance and co-ordination, tires easily and suffers from a tremor that becomes more pronounced when she moves, for instance when reaching for a toy.
