If you ride in the rain, you get the mud

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Never expect a pristine bike from November to April.

“I washed this bike yesterday and look at it today.”

Photographer’s notes: No European cyclist can expect  their bike to be clean from November to April. Aussies, Kiwi and SA riders can have their glee for the moment. If you are a Belgian cyclist, then you might never have a clean bike for 24 hours. Rain has been permanent, of late.

I have a like for these fenders. Tight and rigid. Likely something I have to find because I am tired of riding home only to find myself with a wet arse on the sofa.
