Setting out on Tuesday morning

Day One started nice and easy along the old railway line (see The first five miles below) but then turned into a slippery, misty, uphill chalk scramble (see The next few misty miles...). It also brought several punctures. Tom drove out in the minibus and collected bikes and riders from the tiny hamlet of Mottistone, having covered 10 miles in their first day. Rest and recreation followed at the Youth Hostel. Next morning, after breakfast and bikewashing we all drove back out to the church at Mottistone. The departure takes 48 seconds in this video. In realtime it took a little bit longer than that...
