Not tonight. Now with all this rain. We’re all for a hundred people charging through the city streets but when it comes to those white lines, those leaves, those drenched grannies… we have to think of everybody’s safety too.
We’ll stay indoors tonight, or slip on the Hunters and sploosh around in the puddles. Tonight is not for biking. Not in a city on slicks with enough grime to lubricate a planetoid.
Don’t get us wrong. At the right time we’re all about getting doused and rolling forth. The right time is not on a spluttery tuesday night in Shanghai when the buses, the taxis, the blind scooters and the rogue mountain bikers are out there with their own agendas.
