konichiwa from japan!
hi everyone, just a quick introduction to people on the forum..just recently got into mountain biking and have been enjoying the sport immensely. cant say have done much off road riding yet except for one or two times but lookiing forward to it. i'm originaly from australia but have been living in japan for the last 3-4 years (hence not much opportunity to go off roading as its a concrete jungle down here..lol..well there are some nice trails but its difficult to get to when you dont have a car but there are some opportunities if one really wants to...so will be trying to organize one next weekend hopefully.
anyway, i've been reading the posts for a while now and it has been a great resource as its difficult to get information in japan if you are not fluent in japanese, so thanks for alll those people giving up their time and energy to help others.. just wanted to say its really appreciated and looking forward to talking and sharing ideas with all the forumers on this site.
Where in Japan are you? My mom's family lives in Japan. I'll be visiting in November. Did you watch the Tour de Japan in May?
hi Jbonus...i'm in nagoya, central japan..2 hrs from tokyo, and an hour from kyoto...where are you c oming in Japan?? no didnt watch the Tour de japan in may coz i dont have tv...i dont follow cycling competitions much. i think it was in hokkaido right?? could be wrong though...although I am getting more an more interested in the sport itself so i guess in time i will...lol..
