Just as the we’re starting to get over the horrendous weather we’ve had so far, it’s a shame we can’t say the same for our kit, which is threatening to crawl to London on its own accord.

A reprieve came in the form of Janine and Dean who whisked our kit off to the nearest laundrette to save our blushes for the next few days of the ride, only for Dean to whisk his own kit off a la Nick Kamen in the Levis 501 advert.

We’ll let you decide whether Dean is a match for Nick or not!
