Day Three: John O'Groats to Land's End

With the Foundation team now a third of the way through their epic cycling challenge, we caught up with David Flatman, Danny Grewcock and David Trick to find out how they were getting on...

David Trick:

"Day three completed after 113 miles and 6000ft of climbing.

"I had to dig so deep today to get to the end, however, I'm pleased to say I didn't cry once!

"Rob Clark, riding for the Foundation, was the first rider home and I believe I managed to come in just a few hours after him. Two 'pit stops' a day at about the 35 and 75 miles points are definitely highlights, as is crossing the finishing line!

"I don't think anyone realised what an incredibly hard and physically demanding challenge this is, although spirits remain high every evening. What joy it is to crawl into a tent knowing there will be a 5.30 alarm call every morning!!

"David Flatman also did well - managing to break a wheel and get three punctures within the space of an hour!

"I'd like to say this is punishing, so if you to have a couple of spare pounds you could donate it would help to make it really worthwhile."
