    Mainland Japan Folding Bike Ride Report

    Got up bright and early and pulled my trusty Mu P8 out. It looked possibly like rain however the weather held and the clouds and cool were greatly appreciated.

    I had big aspirations for pedaling about 30 or 40 km out and coming back and I was doing a fine job of it and next thing i know I'm headed back into the same town I left from. I'm not sure how I pulled a circle but I sure did. I was fairly convinced I was still headed away but screwed the pooch somehow or another.

    No sweat. I rode up and down and around the local area, stayed in the saddle about 3 hours and had a great relaxing ride. Photos are from around Kintai Bridge area in Iwakuni Japan.

    I call the pic with the Charcoal Gas truck, "We've Come A Long Way Baby"

    I call the first one "Indiana John and The Temple of Dahon"



    Second pic has nothing to do with bikes other than the fact I was standing on my bike when I took it but it's the shot of the day.

    Nope. Getting caught with a bike on that bridge would get you time in the pokey around here. On the humps the wood is all stepped.

    You wouldn't want to ride a bike on that thing anyway.
