Today my job was running some events away from my usual work place with some of my colleagues and I knew I would have time to change if I arrive there a little early, I went there on my road bike. It was just 6 miles but I went through a beautiful lake so I took some pictures with my bike in it. Well these photos will show you what the city I live in is like (Mito, Ibaraki) and my secondary road bike so I will put it up.
You can see the skyscraper (not scraping at all, though. It is a typical small size local city of Japan) and our famous art tower (when the big East-Japan earthquake hit Japan, for a month after that we had a couple of more-than-M6 earthquakes everyday and since TV kept showing this tower every time there was an earthquake, this tower have become petty famous).
I enjoyed a nice ride on the way, and I was thinking of going a little extra distance on the way home but 5 minutes after I took off, it started raining and wound up getting soaking wet. I went straight home and rushed into a shower.
I rode 20 miles on a stationary bike in the morning and rode 12 miles back and forth between my working site and home. 32 miles and soaked. I, however, am forgiving today partly because I was able to enjoy a nice morning ride and partly because I am getting a iPhone 5 tomorrow. I usually work six days a week but I have Saturday and Sunday off this week so I can really and truly say TGIF.
BTW, I really and truly hate this time of the year. You cannot trust the weather report at all, And it does not just rain. When it rains, it pours. And cyclist cannot avoid getting soaked to the bones. 😥
