We no longer run our RIDE24 but we do have lots of other exciting cycling events which you can find here!

Want to try something spectacular in 2014?

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.

Solo entries We welcome weekend warriors and you don't need to be a part of a team to join the fun. Sign up and join our growing number of solo endurance riders.

Whether you are a Lycra clad enthusiast or a fun rider then we will look after you. Our fully equipped rider village will keep you going with 24-hour non stop hot food and refreshments, sports massage therapists, a talented bike mechanic team and shower facilities which along with the ample camping will ensure that you can focus on the challenge of conquering the mighty RIDE24 challenge.
