This is but one of the many creative way in which Japanese cyclists choose to carry an umbrella on their bicycle. The crook of the umbrella is hooked around the seat post while the shaft is woven through the rear forks and bicycle rack in a way that is secure and prevents the umbrella from geting stuck in the spokes. Because you never know when you'll get caught in a shower.
