Fast forward 3 hours and Well, thats Day One done. As we climb off our equipment, the reality of what we are doing hits us in the form of saddle sours, aches and pains in our legs, back and bums. Quickly off to the sauna to sooth our aches and pains.

Not bad, we're off to a flyer. The three of us covered quite alot of ground already a combined total of 261.6km on the bike and 37 km by rowing. But as we know we have got to go a little bit further. Only a combined total of 1464.45km on land and 152km by sea to go.

Roll on Day two.....
