Gay Street

June 30, 2009

Cycling through England whose virtue is little more than a moving picture with sun and fresh air this is occasionally punctuated by the onset of a rain shower. It is not possible to remain dry in heavy rain so wear thin clothing like skin, ventilated and which drys almost immediately.

Avoid getting wet and cold towards the end of a journey. Practice is overtaken by intution and one becomes able to predict as a prophet voraussager/voraussagen, roughly the weather.

On this journey through The Rural English Countryside and The Suburbs of England often in sunny showers place names approach far too big for their importance.
