Di, Andy, Richard and Steve, all geared up and weatherproofed ready to go. I followed them, in my car, out of the close, and at that point it started hammering down. I saw them turning left at the end of the road in a haze of rain and spray with a little bit of snow mixed in. Best of luck guys. Andy contacted me later and although they started off in hail and rain, thankfully, conditions did get better later and they did 20 miles in all. And that with no tea stop. Well done.
A pleasant 23 miles though.
