Deloitte RAB 2014: Blog Day 5

It was a tale of two halves today; having left the less scenic surrounding of Preston, you were yet again amongst lines of hedgerows that slowly began to disappear as the land became more dramatic, more barren and much hillier. Welcome to the Lake District. Here is where the fun begins, the myths circulate and the drama increases. If you have not already, make sure you keep your eyes up and appreciate where you are. It is difficult to gain perspective, take a step back and appreciate quite what you have achieved so far…but please make sure you soak it up, we are here to give you as much photographic evidence of what you’ve done as possible but after all, this is your personal experience.

Deloitte RAB 2014: Blog Day 4

We were blessed again today, no only was the sun shining but we had Gold medallist Paralympian Mark Colbourne gracing us for the day.

Deloitte RAB 2014: From our perspective

Day One of the Deloitte Ride Across Britain kicked off this morning to the tune of ‘Eye of the Tiger’, blaring out across Lands End at 5:30am. Riders are always pretty quick to emerge on the first day of the Ride, many of them having lain awake for the previous hour contemplating the enormity of the task that lay before them, and by 6:30 we already had the first keen-beans waiting by the starting gate to be sent on their way at 7. Conditions for riding were pretty much perfect, with minimal winds, low chance of rain, and some good cloud cover to keep the worst of the sun off exposed necks and arms on the way through Cornwall to Okehampton.

Deloitte RAB 2014: Day 1 Blog

Here’s a guest blog post from Alex Partridge, silver and bronze Olympic medal winner at both Beijing and London. Only months after London 2012, Alex took on the Deloitte Ride Across Britain 2012, from Land’s End to John O’Groats. I caught up with Alex at Pitstop two in doublebois…the Olympian was doubled up and fast asleep. For those who made it through day 1 without having to be woken from a coma, you may now smile a smug smile. Here are Alex’s comments on his day 1 Deloitte RAB experience: Read More…
