After a protracted, freezing and rainy spring, summer finally hit Shanghai a few weeks ago. Prior to the sun breaching the clouds (if not always the smog), the streets were full of the poncho-wearing cyclists like the two in this shot by Flickr user jrodmanjr. Yes, two – the yellow blur is also a biker who whipped past at just the right moment. Ponchos are inevitably brightly colored because it’s hard enough surviving as a cyclist in Shanghai traffic without being invisible during frequent winter and spring rains.
If you have great shots from your travels, upload them to the Gadling Flickr pool, or share them on Instagram, mentioning @gadlingtravel and using the hashtag #Gadling. We choose new ones several times a week for out Photo Of The Day.
