Following a much needed nights sleep, the riders woke up motivated and ready to tackle the 34 miles from Austwick to that nights stop over at Pateley Bridge. Even the rain and wet conditions couldn’t dampen the mood in the group.

Before getting back on her bike, Kali Holder took part in a live interview on the BBC Radio Sussex Breakfast Show, where she talked about Goalball and the Coast to Coast challenge. To hear the interview, click on the link below (interview starts at 01:26.00).

The route passed through Settle and Boroughbridge, which meant the riders had some long and steep hills to climb. Even though everyone found it tough, they gritted their teeth and powered up them in a manner which even Chris Froome would be proud of. Their reward for this was a relaxing and enjoyable ride back down the hills afterwards though.

Thankfully the rain stayed away for the majority of the day, meaning no one was very wet when they arrived at the overnight stop in Pateley Bridge.

That night we interviewed Glasgow player Natalie Jamieson on how she was feeling at the half way point of the challenge.

As with the night before, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their evening meal (at The Old Granary in Pateley Bridge) and getting to socialise with other members of the group.
