Beginning in London's Docklands, the home of LINX Network and LONAP, the 4Challenge riders finally put tires to tarmac! The first challenge was battling the central London traffic before heading North and with a the odd puncture and refuelling pit stop, all the riders crossed the day one finish line in one piece. Now to dinner and sleep before tomorrow's 104 mile stint.

Day one highlights? Getting out of London alive, seeing how amazing the kit looked when we were all riding together, being asked by everyone who saw us what we were doing and cycling through some amazing countryside. Not bad!
