What a difference a day makes? Tonight’s commute felt like whaling around the cape with horrendous winds and driving rain. I was drenched by a van who ploughed through an enormous puddle. I had to laugh despite smelling of stagnant water.
I rode an MTB today fitted with semi-slicks which was a change, slower but relaxed. I use this bike as my touring and pub / shopper as it is complete with guards, rack and panniers. I was carrying more luggage today and this bike is a real work horse.
So return of the hi-vis jacket and waterproofs.
