Day 30 – Handover from Team 5 to Team 6, Saturday 7th September, Part 3

First things first.  Once we’d been checked in to the accommodation, had a cup of coffee and a custard cream, it was time to sort out the important things.  Mascots.

Neil (our support driver) had a good sort out and clean of the van (he hoped it would stay this nice!) and we all got our bikes all tweaked ready to go in the morning.  Once the route had been checked over for tomorrow, we headed out to dinner.

Quickly followed by an early night.
