"A dry window to start day 9 forecast variable. The lactic acid has been kept at bay and they are so keen to rack up another 100miles! After last nights meal I am surprised they can move....." - Andy Heaton

Cycle B2B - Day 9 - Paul and James Heaton leave camp

"What a day! James has had 4 punctures the roads are atrocious, still the bonus is the sun is finally shining. The down side is still 4 hours to go. Navigating across the Somme is very difficult... The lads are grinning and baring it on this the most difficult day of the event so far... Give them all the support you can." - Andy Heaton

Cycle B2B - Day 9 - Paul and James Heaton enjoy the sun at last!

"When I posted earilier and said 'just over 100miles to Condette' what I really meant was - just over 130 miles to Condette with a strong headwind, 5hours of persistant somtimes torrential Rain and delayed with 4 punctures and 1900m of climbing! What an excellent day out on the bike... please sponsor us...
