Shanghai Cycling: Hardcore

A few weeks ago, because it was raining, I decided to take a taxi.  Of course, all the other fair-weather cyclists had the same idea, so I hung around ages waiting for one, and got to work late, stressed, soaking wet and breakfastless.  Never again. 

So a couple of times this week, I've had to deploy the rain cape.  Yesterday in particular was a real subtropical downpour.  It was fine, though.  Less bikes than usual, and everyone was being slower and more careful.  I've realised, though, that the rain cape is a bit too small for me, and why does it have sleeves in it?
