Cycling Day 2

So Day 2 of the Peru Cycle Challenge.....

The morning after the day before. Some very weary bodies again arrived at 8am, sore legs and bums were the norm, with many bringing cushions for the saddles today!!

After a brilliant daily total from everyone yesterday, 17hrs up on the target, everyone continued to work incredibly hard to keep the total going.

The swimming dream team of Alice Marchant, Alice Smyth and Sophie Thrussell put in a tremendous effort first thing, each completing 2 hours in one stint!
Brilliant effort girls!!

Alex Nichols enjoyed it so much today, we can quote him
 "I want to be a professional cyclist"

Senior Lecturers and Staff (Alan, Mark, Neil, Oli and Ben) were seen popping in between lecturing to do their hours. Rumour has it, Alan was lecturing on a bike this afternoon!!

The prize for the most unconventional cycling technique most definitely goes to Kane Reed, not sure he would quite make David Brailsford's Team Sky but a fantastic effort from him though none the less!
Great effort Kane!

Padded shorts were a key piece of equipment for many today and were seen on Rebecca Relf, Harry McCullough, Dominic Hedges, Hannah Webb and Alan Richardson among others!

Neil Maxwell and Oli Gibson both managed to watch an entire film on their Ipads today, thats one way of making the time go by!!

Oli and Ben hard at work on the bikes

The consumption of pasta has been at an all time high, with students using our sports nutrition knowledge to help fuel us. Chocolate, cakes and biscuits were also seen to be very popular with everyone!

A special mention must go to Lottie Thompson, who when not cycling provided endless amounts of food (well Jaffa Cakes and Chocolate!)

It has been great fun again today with everyone putting in a fantastic effort.

The final total today was 139 hours, keeping us ahead of the overall target.

Back for day 3 tomorrow......
