Very good job. I wasn't expecting anything like this from Sophie, I must be honest.
The made frequent stops but averaged 70 miles per day, or so. Spent nights at army barracks - how smart and cost-wise was that! Their chase car was also military. Anna did a brilliant day by day post - with a map and other details at My Small obsessions on FB: https://www.facebook.com/Kate.Sophie...Blogs/?fref=ts It's the perfect way to get caught up.

Oh thank you! I thought I was being really stupid in asking such a question.

Well done to the whole team!

I do believe one family member missed Sophie more than anyone else!

James and mummy

James was so happy to see her that he wrapped his arms around her when Edward was hugging her and didn't let go. Then he moved to be next to her during the photo and wrapped his arms around her again = Mummy's boy!

I've said it before but i'll say it again - James' dimples are CUTE!

Wonderful effort from the Duchess and her team. 500+ miles is a long way to cycle...and all for a worthy cause. I'm curious if she is going to continue cycling as a hobby and a means to stay fit and trim. Seems a waste to lose that level of fitness now, as well as all the other benefits of being active...

She's already made a comment that she will set a new challenge, but did not specify what.

The Countess cracks me up. If you have not read her Day 6 blog, you will enjoy it. It's chock-a-block with cycling and team hi-jinks. I wonder how many times the kids rolled their eyes at this.

I loved reading Sophie's diaries from the week's ride. She made so many funny quips and they were also very well written. I'd like to see a video of the formation cycling along with their humming at the airbase. Would be very amusing to watch i'm sure.

I still can't get over how cute it was to see James throw himself at Sophie when she arrived. He didn't let her go for most of the time when they were outside Buckingham Palace. This photo from Anna's blog is adorable. This photo from the same instagram account was just as cute. He is quite the mummy's boy.

The videos are also lovely and I loved seeing Edward allow James to give Sophie her pin. Getting his practice in for when he's the Duke of Edinburgh!

Great links here ..... thanks peeps!

James is so lovely just wanting to be by Mum! Half suspect, looking at him Edward did too, but had to hold back being the adult! Lovely family!

Bit behind in things but have been reading her blogs and looking at her photos from the ride. I have really enjoyed reading. She has an incredible sense of humour. I share Philip's opinion of shock they she did this challenge

Great photos of her still her cup as well. Definitely two events that show a different side then the usually polished style. She really got into the cup, and seemed to enjoy herself.

I don't know where to put this, but I have an extremely strong feeling that Edward and Sophie years ago were on the London Eye, when it opened, so the following 'Hello' quote is not true, I believe.

Quote:
The London Eye hosted some very special guests on Monday as Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry became the first members of the British royal family to ride the iconic landmark. The trio were clearly in high spirits as they arrived on London's Southbank, laughing and chatting as they boarded one of the pods together.
