Deloitte RAB 2012 - An Adventure Day 9 - The Final Instalment
The final day dawns and the excitement around the camp is tangible. This would be the day we reached the end of our journey, the last day of riding 100 miles on my bike. (Let’s face it, after this it might be the last time I ever get on my bike...)

Deloitte RAB 2012 - An Adventure? Day 8
Unsurprisingly, after yesterday’s epic day, I slept in – PANIC! Apparently the Proclaimers had been playing but I hadn’t heard a thing and I now know I wasn’t the only one. I awoke to find it light and knew immediately that something wasn’t right. At 530 it is definitely dark and it is not until you are emerging from breakfast or cleaning your teeth that the sun is rising and you can switch your headtorch off. It was 640 and we were due to leave at 715. No time for breakfast and in a complete panic, I ran around collecting my laundry, getting into my kit and packing up. By some incredible miracle I screeched to a halt at the start at 715 exactly almost in tears so terrifying was the prospect of being left behind by my group.

Deloitte RAB 2012 - An Adventure? Day 6
After yesterday’s battle, ‘Don’t stop believing’ rang out this morning! The day dawned a little damp but it soon dried up. The roads were flat and wide and today we made good time throughout, which was lucky as today was the day my mother was waiting at the other end to see and hear what on earth I had been up to. I grew up in Scotland and have only been South for 10 or so years but I had forgotten the lay of the dramatic landscape and there is no better way to view it than on a bicycle. Having passed Carlisle we were soon in Gretna Green and crossing into Scotland. It hardly seems possible that we have put a whole country behind us by pedal power alone.

Deloitte RAB 2012 - An Adventure? Day 5
Day 5 did not start well, despite the ‘Eye of the Tiger’ wake up call. We were sodden, from the moment we started it was literally pouring down our faces, we could barely see. My feet were swimming in my shoes despite the ’waterproof’ overshoes and my hands were swimming in my apparently ‘waterproof’ gloves.

Deloitte RAB 2012 - An adventure? Day 4
Day 4 is uneventful. Along the 106 miles from Ludlow to Haydock race courses, the terrain is the flattest of the trip, the weather is reasonable but I still manage to have a bad day. I’m just exhausted having ridden over 400 miles and beginning to wonder whether I can physically complete another 400 and more. I obviously haven’t reached that stage where you begin to get fitter and stronger yet, so the day drags for me.
