We can’t believe it – the last day!

Leaving the Premier Inn to a grand farewell from our Pit Crew (and Do Good!)

It had got to go well – there were no punctures before we started this morning and we were taking no risks coming out of St. Austell and asked at least 5 people if we were going in the right direction!

Well, what can we say…no punctures, no falling off, no getting lost, no rain! We were storming along…..

…4 hours in with only a short break…we only had 12 miles to go!

The photo to prove it! (Or the thief returns the bikes with 12 miles to go! ….only joking – we have cycled it all and don’t we know it!)

At 4 miles to go we passed Graham’s parents in a lay-by who frantically waved us on and then were passed by our wives and children in the cars as they caught us up. They had been planning their time on our previous days events and nearly didn’t beat us to the finish line!

The approach to the Finish line and finally crossing the Finish line! Yippee!!!!

14:05 we landed!

Our welcome in from the Pit Crew…

And finally we had a fantastic celebration dinner at the Lugger Bistro in Porthleven – one to look up if you are ever in the area. And our thanks to David Richards for allowing us to toast our amazing achievement in true winning style!
