@MatthewB - haven't had a look yet, but if I get a Zipcar for the whole day it's usually between 50 and 60 GBP (depending on size of the car)

There is another option I may be looking at, will let you know.

If it's just the two of us, we may get a Polo/Golf and just put the bikes in the back, without the need for a bike rack.
Does this sound interesting at all?

Car would allow us to take a change of clothes and some extras, which may be nice on the way back...
What do you think?

Anybody else interested?

Thanks to TCC for another very well-run Rumble on the Surrey lanes. Ann's cakes were very well-received (on several occasions - I think I must have had slices from at least 3 of her delicious cakes), Jason's Broom Wagon proved an oasis in the desert of the Surrey Rainy Forest (thanks for loan of track pump + availability of extra tubes), and everyone else was just so nice and friendly! Special mention as well for the scrumptious cakes from Seale's Tea Shop.
We got rain, we got wind, we got sleet and also snow (Steev mentioned hail at one point), but the challenge didn't prove unsurmountable. Although my (left) knee is kinda complaining a bit still.
Well done everyone involved, and all who rode today.

I think the photographer had gone home by the time we came through - late start.

He photographed me as I went by but I didn't bother to display my number so no pictures.
