Skydive for React!

Imagine sitting at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, skydiving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

London to Paris Cycle Ride

Cycling across London to Paris is one of the great cycle experiences in Europe. Passing through picturesque countryside, we cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs the sight of the Eiffel Tower, our finishing point, will evoke a real sense of achievement.

Three Cities Cycle Ride

Explore the best the continent has to offer as the Three Cities Cycle takes you through beautiful English countryside, past windmills and canals of Holland, and on to Belgium’s sleepy villages. With 280 glorious miles across Essex, Amsterdam and Brussels during this stunning five day adventure, how could you resist?

“22 miles onwards was a real test. I had to slow down and concentrate on self-preservation. Despite the heat, the crowds were amazing and really made a difference.”
