Autumn is here!

After a terrible, terrible summer, autumn is finally here! Temperatures have fallen 10 degrees or more in the last 2 weeks. Amazing. Cycling can resume properly! At least, when the current endless rain allows it to...

A couple of fun tidbits from the past few weeks...

I had to stop in Uji to find a drug store and buy some steroid cream. Fun...
