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.

London to Brighton Cycle Ride

This 55 mile challenge is not for the faint-hearted but boasts wonderful views of the English countryside whilst you make your way through a scenic route and complete your cycle at the famous Brighton seafront. It’s perfect for solo riders who are up for the challenge or those taking part with friends and family.
