To support the ARCA Charity Week some of the staff at Burton aim to cover the 480 miles, the distance between its furthest training facilities in Glasgow and Rayleigh, on an exercise bike in the office.
After a day of cycling on Monday the team began again at 9am yesterday!
At the end of the first day the team had covered over 155 miles. This excellent start found the team over the Scottish border and into the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
After putting in another good day, covering over 160 miles, they are near Lincoln.
The challenge continues as there is still a way to go!
