The Caterer, the Butcher, the Chef and the Wine Merchant go for a bike ride (for charity)

If you can cast your mind back to last Thursday (19th), it was not the most delicious weather ever and 20 miles out of London the rain started. More to the point, the wind howled (think Roaring Forties, but in East Sussex..). Together they make for some moral sucking riding. There were three of us from the team of eight who were optimistic about the weather and had no rain jacket, needless to say we all got pretty wet, even those in wet weather gear.
