Well, folks, it’s somewhat been a bit of a learning curve for the dynamic trio over the past few days! Let’s check out what they have to say about their first day…

🚴‍♂️ Cornwall is hella hilly!⛰️ We knew there was a fair amount of elevation to cover but were not prepared for how relentlessly up and down it was.
🚴‍♂️ Our training ride speed of 25km/h is ambitious! We ended up with a long 12hr day (including cake breaks! 🍰)
🚴‍♂️ Garmin navigation is pretty good…when followed (more on this below)
🚴‍♂️ Don’t clasp your hands in front of you when posing for a photo of the back of your tops; it can have unintended consequences!

Overall though, it was a really good day; after the initial push through the weather, the hedgerows of Cornwall thankfully protected us from the majority of the wind!

David Inglis (Bailey) Inglis played a blinder at getting ahead of the “peloton” and snapping us in action 📸. And at the end of the day, we crossed into the “Sally Dale” territory of Devon and rolled into the hotel in Okehampton.

To celebrate all aspects of the challenge, we decided that each day a special shout-out should be made to the biggest doughball of the day…aka the Richard of the Day🏆 Today’s award goes to…Kenneth Anderson for ignoring his Garmin and his two colleagues shouting at him as he went the wrong way, then proceeding to crack on for a good mile before realising he was on his tod!
