The Cycle Challenge: Day 1
The wheels of the 12 bikes started turning at 8am on Thursday and we were still going at 9pm.
Some were already looking a little worn after the first hour. It wasn't long until the feasibility of the task was being questioned with the standard answer being "It was a good idea at the time". The enthusiastic trepidation soon turned to a sea of thoroughly unhappy individuals, except the ever jovial Jacob Miles to enjoy the challenge, completing 7 hours of cycling.
Some students spent much of the time ensuring their energy stores were appropriately managed.
Overall we accumulated 133 hours of cycling between us - 17 hours more than our target! Hopefully we will have recovered well enough for the same tomorrow....?
