Stage One Update
The riders set off from Exton, at 07:30a.m, things were looking good with plenty of time on our hands.
Our estimated time of arrival at the Bed & Breakfast was to be about 15:30p.m, however 30 miles in after a short stop I noticed i had lost my video camera, a few of us went back to look for it, and to our amazement in the long grass we found it, having travelled back nearly 2 miles to look for it.
We arrived at The Fox at North Waltham for a lovely cold pint, and a bacon roll.
From then on we had a fair few punctures, and then whilst going across Watership Down, one of the bikes gave up, with the rear hub collapsing, which slowed us down, no end. One of the lads came off, and all in all, we turned up to the Bed & Breakfast, The Millhouse, Shalbourne about 19:45p.m.
