Day 1 done! Cornwall is very hilly! And the weather’s not been great either!
We got one hell of a tail wind coming out of Land’s End but it soon turned gusty with some nasty blasts of wind coming from the side.
However, we were quite glad to be slightly protected from the wind by the high hedgerows for most of the ride.
Who’s on the “most punctures on trip gets thrown in the sea at John O’Groats” leaderboard!? I hear you ask! Well, at the end of day 1, there are NO punctures to report!
Stats for LEJoG day 1:
4,833ft ascent. 4,856 descent.
Fastest speed 41.7mph.
Average speed 12.9mph (mostly waiting for John to catch up!).
Max heart rate 189bpm.
Apologies for those checking the live map. I forgot to re-start the app when we had a quick stop at about 55 miles. You’ll have to wait until I’m able to upload the files from the GPS for the final route!
