This week was a tough one, not only were we one person down for a few days (Daddy's bike needed new tyres!) but it has been so windy, it's as though it has been against us on every hill that we had to climb! Sadly, we've also come to a bit of a plateau in our NHS fundraising this week, so at times, it's been a little difficult to self motivate!
We'd love to get just a few more donations, to get us up to £700, so if you can spare the price of a coffee or a pint, please help us to help others, we really do appreciate all donations, and understand how difficult it is at the moment.
Despite that, we did however manage our longest cycle ride yet, a 20.35 km trip via Bedwyn and the windmill. We also recorded our fastest speed - a whopping 36.7km/h (that's over 22 mph!) down Wilton Hill. Not bad for a 7 year old!
We reached our penultimate stop this week, Glastonbury Festival which we try and get to every year with the girls. So, while we were out cycling, we created our own Glastonbury Festival picnic - complete with "helter-skelter" (it's very similar if you ignore the sails!), glitter tattoos and bubbles!
Lots of fun, but not quite what we had in mind for this years Glastonbury (our plans for a yellow submarine Glasto Truck are put on hold until 2021! (see the video below!)
So far, we have cycled a magnificent 336 miles and with just over 60 miles to go until we reach our last stop in Torquay, could we be eating ice-creams on the beach before week 9 is over?
Find out next week!
At the start of Lockdown Anya, 7, decided that she wanted to virtually visit all her friends and family since she knew she would really miss them! So, as a family, we started to use our daily exercise time to cycle (luckily we have some beautiful surroundings!) and kept a note of how far she got!
