Couch Classic Challenge - bring on the bruschetta

The cyclists successfully completed their first day of cycling, travelling a total of 69.5km (Only 166.5km to go…).

With the sun shining and temperatures in the 70’s, the team cycled through a variety of landscapes from gentle hills filled with vineyards and olive groves, through the far reaching Mediterranean forest all the way into a long stretch of fields filled with sunflowers and medicinal herbs.

The dynamic landscape was a welcome distraction to the long ride, which saw the cyclists climb over 1200m.  Cycling up-hill burns a substantial number of calories, so we think they have earned some of that wonderful Tuscan food – bring on the Bruschetta! And, bring on day two!
