Sky Sports News presenters Julian Waters and Rob Wotton are cycling 400 miles in a week to raise funds for Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK.
The dynamic duo will leave St James Park, Exeter today and hope to reach St James' Park, Newcastle on Saturday July 14.
Rob shares the highlights of day two after a hair-raising descent...
Today was a great day, and the highlight was definitely the cameo appearance from Jim White who leapt out of a van and joined us for some of the route.
He really buoyed us up - in fact we decide on doing a few extra miles! We arrived in Stroud and decided that while the weather was relatively good we would carry on to Cheltenham. The forecast for Tuesday is not so good so the few extra miles today may just help us out get to the end of our journey!
The body never holds up that well but it has been better than I expected or anticipated. I am in a bit of pain but nothing that a hot bath, a bite to eat and a goodnights sleep wont sort out.
I must admit that I did find sleeping a bit difficult last night - every time I turned over something hurt and I would wake up!
Apart from the physical part of the challenge I did not realise how mentally tough it would be. You spend five or six hours on the bike concentrating hard on what is going on around you and that really drains you.
We went down quite a sharp descent today and the roads were full of holes and it was a bit scary. We were hurtling down there at 35mph trying to avoid oncoming lorries and huge holes in the road - it was certainly interesting.
My partner in crime Julian is doing very well - even though he is older than me he is much fitter than me! But the teamwork has been fantastic and I think he has been helping me a lot more than i have been helping him!
We also have a great ride leader called Gav from Love Velo who has just been immense. He has been cheering us up and chivvying us on and has made sure we are on the correct route. The bikes have also been a revelation - I think we have done 128 miles so far, however without the bikes I probably would have done about 28!
Tomorrow we head to Birmingham and who knows what surprises will leap out of us tomorrow! If you are on the route, give us a wave!
