Here's (Not Very) P&C at the top of the Kirkstone Pass in the Lake District, the highest pass that is open to traffic. It is at an altitude of 1,489 feet and in places the gradient is 1 in 4!! Well done to all the cyclists for conquering it.

The total times for the ride so far show that Team (Not Very) P&C has a healthy lead, though all the teams are doing fantastically well for our two causes. Keep it up everyone!

The teams are now half way through their ride, and are back on English soil.  Here's some picture highlights from their weekend pedaling through Scotland:

Day Two, and the sun is shining. Here's Rebecca and Dave from Fac n' Special on the long uphill drag to Faskally in Perthshire for the afternoon break.

Mark  Colgate of Team (Not Very) P&C had to be binned half way through. Not really - he's actually in an ice bath. Chilly!

The teams  crossed the border into England earlier today. They are currently taking on the hills of the Lake District and will finish for the night in Lancaster.
