Making our way through unknown roads we found ourselves at The Abergavenny Arms in Romdell, charging the spare batteries and organising energy bars and gels for the riders arrival about half an hour later. By this time it was pitch black and past 8pm. With 20 miles left to go, it was evident it was going to be a late finish. Spirits were understandably low and fatigue had begun to set in, with every pedal stroke feeling harder than the last. There was one more stop between the small village of Romdell and Eastbourne where a fast battery swap would be carried out before the very last leg of the challenge.
After this, Josh and I dove on to check in at the hotel in Eastbourne. An hour later, as the clock ticked past 12am, the moon shimmered over the calm sea and a few drunken revellers stumbled across the street, four guys rode in on E-Bikes. The challenge was over.
