Allsort or umbrella?


Last night, cycling home on the black, slippery streets of London, I was patiently waiting in the pouring rain for a chance to turn onto a very busy, narrow main road when a lady cycled past me with an UMBRELLA.

Now, I've long championed casual commuter cycling. No lycra for me thanks, pal. But even I donned ridiculous bright yellow Dickies plastic pants for the journey home last night. And a hi-vis Sam Browne. I looked like a Licorice Allsort.

And she had an umbrella!

Madness, I tell you.
