Joe Parkin, "6 Years in a Rain Cape"

Seems Joe Parkin, author of the excellent A Dog in a Hat, now has a new blog, in collaboration with Competitive Cyclist if I understand correctly. The title refers to the time he spent in Belgium, where he came to own a vast array of rain capes, from the heavy-duty one he used on crap days, to the light one he put in his jersey pocket for sunny days (since it would inevitably start to rain). Anyways it looks like he posts very regularly and fields daily questions. I highly recommend him, he's funny and really colourful.
