Steve's clearly woken refreshed! After all, look at his speed shortly after this morning's start (mile 223-ish)

Problem with a garmin - could lose those miles if the back up does not validate it as actually ridden .

Yesterday Steve mentioned that he had 3 different Garmins on board and he has 24 hours to submit each day's ride. I assume Steve has been phoning members of his support crew. Some forensic work this morning/ afternoon might save the day. What assistance might be needed today?

My impression is that we are OK - there were a lot of team e-mails hurtling around a couple of hours ago

Having just ridden a mere 8km into today's block 40kph westerly, I'd say Steve's biggest need is a couple of Chris Hoys to hide behind! He's going to earn his miles today  :o.

I see he is in Tewkesbury. Jane and I had lunch there after some COR in July 2013.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

You grew up? How disappointing for you. I didn't.

I've ridden to Tewkesbury.

And eaten/drunk in the Hop Pole.

I've also done the same to/in Milton Keynes.

Do I get a badge? ;)

Are you sure? It looks like they've just turned on the tracker for testing to me. Unless you know otherwise ...

No. It's Gloucestershire. No badges, just badgers.

...and it looks like Steve's just finished day 2. Back at home looking forward to a rather large mug 'o tea I guess.
