After 8 days of road cycling (and pushing when one of the riders got a puncture), Peloton, and Spin Bike, Fletchers Flyers finished an amazing 8th out of the 236 teams who entered by way of distanced covered between 1st March and 8th March. Team Captain Tracy summed up the feeling of the team the day after the event, with the words “Morning team!! What a glorious morning to not have to get on a bloody bike”, but also said of her team, “You are all amazing – and for fear of being labelled ‘a softy’ God forbid, I am a bit teary”.
