It was an early start to Dover and after a big send off from parents and Mr Baron, we set out on our 800 mile cycling adventure.
Most students had a sleep and (not so unfortunately) missed the adults singing the White Cliffs of Dover as we approached the South Coast.
After a couple of motorway stops we arrived in glorious sunshine, took our bikes of the trailer and headed to the beach to dip our back tyres in the English Channel before heading out on our journey from the south easterly tip of Dover to the far north westerly tip of Scotland.
It was a tough start from the coast up the cliffs but once we had reached the summit, it was a nice flat ride to the campsite. So far it has been nice weather and we hope it stays that way.
Once we got to the campsite, we set up our tents and unpacked for the first night.
