The first, rather informal meeting of our industry cycling group. (Someone, please, suggest a club name with a decent pun in it.) Fifty-odd miles around the hills of Kent. From left: Hercules and Chris, Edward Green; me; Andy Murphy, Cleverley; Samuel, Troubadour leather goods; Charles, Turnbull & Asser; Euan, Edward Green.

Samuel was kind to us, given his ex-pro status, and Andy did very well given that apparently they don’t have hills in Essex. Douglas, Ollie, Alex etc – no excuses next time.

Euan gets very excited at conquering a hill.

Garmin-checking time.
