Pippa, 30, and James, 27, both posed for photographs before loading up their bikes and jumping into a waiting black vehicle, presumably headed for a nearby hotel so the team could get some rest.
On Saturday, the pair joined nearly 300 other cyclists in San Diego, California for the start of the Race Across America, a 3,000 mile charity bike ride.
Pippa Middleton placing her order
The Middletons and their teammates will travel through 12 states in eight days, covering between 350 – 500 miles per day. They are raising money for the British Heart Foundation, of which Pippa is now an ambassador, and the Michael Matthews Foundation.
After completing the event, sporty Pippa is auctioning her bike on eBay to help generate more funds. In July, she and James are then heading to Istanbul to take part in the Bosphorus Cross-Continental Race Swimming Race; a 6.5 km swim across the Bosphorus Strait.
