Pippa Middleton is in for a long bike ride—one that will last eight days and span 12 states.

Along with her brother James, Middleton kicked off a 3,000 mile Race Across America on Saturday in San Diego to raise money for the Michael Matthews Foundation and the British Heart Association.

“Once we get going it’s non-stop, with very little sleep,” Middleton told The Daily Mail. “It’s nerve-racking but exciting and all for a great cause.”
