Third challenge -- DONE!

We did it! We don’t quite know how but we completed our third challenge and cycled 150 km at Lake Constance Bike Marathon! Six hours in the saddle, more than half in appalling conditions – pouring rain, zero visibility and freezing temperatures at only slightly over 10C. Luckily, the organisers offered plenty of soup and hot drinks along the way to keep everyone going. Bouillon never tasted better... Eventually, the weather gods remembered that it isn’t winter just yet, kindly agreed to stop the rain and even brought the sun out for the last hour. That made all the difference, and we managed to get somewhat dry and warm for the final push. Ironically, summer was back in full swing as we crossed the finish line. At least, we had our celebratory bowl of pasta in T-shirts. Now that we’ve showered and fully warmed up, I must admit that we are starting to feel rather epic...

THANK YOU, a thousand times, to everyone for their support. Your messages of encouragement and support on the day made the whole difference. We will be in touch again once we've recovered and slept.
