i'm so glad to meet other people who love bicycle's as much as i do.
I feel like the original bike freak of all time.
I'm 43 , live in Toyko Japan , with my family, and stationed in the military.( USAF)
Riding in Japan is very different, than where I grew up, Moline, Illinois.
First , there are billions of people, cars, scooters, bikes, and trains everywhere!
You really have to be on your toes.
Secondly, the Japanese people respect bikes, unlike Americans.
How many time in the States have you been yelled at, cussed at, water balloons thrown at, forced off the road, ALMOST HIT, OR JUST GENERALLY NOT SEEN.
HERE, EVERY BODY IS SO BIKE FRIENDLY,THEY ALWAYS GIVE the CYCLIST THE RIGHT OF WAY...
ALL THE TIME!!
If a CAR HITS A BIKE EVER...ITS THE CARS FAULT,
If a BIKE HITS A CAR ...IT'S THE CARS FAULT.
I'm happy to be with you all and look forward to many great discussions!
