This was a BIG National ride and Being mainly riders from the capital- I suppose they are a bit more reserved than us Rural lads. On some of ourlocal rides you do feel left out if you don't put a bit of effort into dressing up. I suppose they could be worried that their City Banker boss will recognise them and promote them onto the board of directors.

There is an article in the London Times online lamenting the dearth of febrile women in England. From your picture I'd have to say the article is wrong.
I am afraid that The London Times appears to be correct- but as noted there are a few exceptions.
This was an expensive ride to enter- even if it was for charity- and they did ask for a lot of sponsorship to do the event. This was also the first time that the Prostate Cancer charity has got involved with the T.o.B. so hopefully riders in future years will lose their inhibitions and put some more effort into promoting the charity.
