Roadblock.png Roadblock: At this farm, teams found the first Roadblock of the race. Who wants to pedal for their partner? The chosen team member had to make their way to nearby Cleggan Bay, a huge set of cliffs surrounding an inlet. They would have to pedal a high-wire bicycle across a thin wire spanning the bay, while their partner sat below on a platform hanging from the bike, going along for the ride.

Staella, Azaria, Kate, Vyxsin, Jason, Marianna, Nathan, Nicolas, Ronald, Jennifer, TK

After the Roadblock, teams had to choose a donkey and fill its saddlebaskets with 15 pieces of peat. They then had to lead the donkey along a long path, around the bay and back to Cleggan Farm, to exchange it for their next clue.
