I wanna cycle around London to look for graffiti.
London is very good for Japan's cyclists.
Left-hand traffic, same as Japan

you make it sound glamorous, I wish my job was to ride lovely bikes around London.

Sadly its more mundane, I am freelance so the bikes are mine, but I work for a car club company, cycling all over London as 2 wheels is quicker than 4. I move cars around to where they are needed, charge electric cars, refill the petrol cars, take photos and do damage reports and refer for repairs, take and collect cars from garages, moving illegally parked cars or fetching cars abandoned out of the zone and trying to find lost cars. I did lots of app testing for them for their own software, and some days I don't do any driving at all, and its all cycle based.

Its pretty varied and I like it, and having been battered by the winter weather for the last 4-5 months (this winter is taking an age to end!) I'm looking forward to the payback of cycling around London in the spring, summer. and autumn, which I love, while most people are stuck indoors.

Its literally impossible to get bored cycling here

Ha yes we both drive on the same side of the road, but I'm sure your drivers are better and more polite than the ones here in London, the language I hear on a daily basis would make a sailor blush

If you ever come to London let me know and I'll gladly take you on a cycle tour of the city to see graffiti or anything else you'd want to see.

The foxes have been here for over a year and I've cycled past them probably twice a week, but today was the first time there has not been a car parked in front of them so finally I got a decent pic

I know this post is 3 months old, but tell us more about this bike. Apparently "United Colours of Benneton" inspired, or perhaps channeling VW Golf Harlequin. What is the story on the paint scheme?

Don't know much about it to be honest, I've never seen another Simoncini in those colors, I did contact Simoncini who confirmed it was original and likely a special order for someone. I bought the frame only on ebay in 2015, it came with a carbon fork, and I found the Columbus Max fork on eBay and thought it was the perfect match.

And since getting the fork I decided to lean into the multi-colors and continued the theme with the rest of the bike. Its a bit small for me but the SLX frame and Max fork make a great combo and its a great riding bike.

Granted, it's commercial graffiti... but down by Jack London in Oakland, where fresh ale flows like mother's milk from the teat of the brewer's tap.
