Tuesday 29th July, Tiverton to Launceston55 miles Yesterday’s leg involved numerous hills, torrential downpours and multiple punctures. We had six punctures, bizarrely always on rear wheels. For most of yesterday the wind was also against us. All in all, it was a long day. We got up this morning to continuing torrential downpours. The rain has been going strong for the last two hours and there is no sign of change. I can’t imagine today’s ride from Launceston to Newquay will be much fun at all. If there was ever any reason to go for a holiday abroad, today is the day to make you decide. It looks as though it is going to be by far our worst day. I think all of us are a little fatigued and ready for the finish. Personally, I’m already regretting going for a beer last night. But I’m sure that it won’t stop me having another tonight. There’s only just over 100 miles to go and I’m looking forward to a day’s rest on Friday. Mike.
