Hello

Hi everyone,

I've just started commuting to work by bicycle in Tokyo (about a week so far). I was totally fed up with feeling like I was in a herd of cattle on the trains, and I just decided one day to ride there. It is honestly the best decision I've made in years. I'm already sleeping better, feel a lot less stressed, discovering interesting places around the city and I'm even losing fat, just after a week!

I'm a bit of a novice really, as I've only ever cycled half a mile to the local station, so on I've got a few questions I'll be posting on the appropriate forums over the next few weeks and I"m looking forward to all your replies.

Cheers!

Hello Bikedelic, commuting in Tokyo sounds like....fun. But better on a bike than on a train, from what I hear.

Post some photos of your commute ride in the Commuting forum, if you can--that would be interesting to see .

Welcome to BF!

CONGRATULATIONS ON JOINING THE GROUP!

please head over to www.tokyocycle.com

there is a tour coming up for this OBON vacation! Please register and post for some local cyclists.

I LOVE to commute every day by bicycle. It gives me relaxation and pleasure to explore the area.
I live East of Tokyo, but am moving back to the US soon. Let's go for a ride!
