“We did nothing but eat, sleep and cycle.”

— Pippa Middleton tells NBC’s Matt Lauer about her recent charity bike ride across the United States in which she cycled about 380 miles in six days.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge thought she’d have some down time to watch movies and read books while her teammates took their turns cycling, but exhaustion left not time for fun and games.

Pippa along with her brother, James, participated in the grueling ride known as the  “Race Across America.” The crew biked across 12 states on their ride from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis.
