Greetings From Tokyo Japan
Hi, I'm a Canadian who has been living in Tokyo Japan for 20 years. I used to live in Vancouver BC before the move.
I'm married with two teenage daughters, we run our own business, my wife's family business, a liquor shop, we work a lot.
I'm in the process of getting back in shape, June 11th of this year I was at 300 pounds, now, Sept 21st I'm at 258 pounds. I want to get back down to about 175 pounds, so I have a ways to go yet :rolleyes:
I recently restored my 1988 Cannondale SM500 and I then built a trailer for it, I do the deliveries around the neighbourhood via my bike and trailer now, unless it is really raining hard. I have also started going on longer rides, two weeks ago I did a ride down to a place called Zushi, it was 64Km/40 miles one way. Last weekend I took part in a group run ride called "Tokyo City Cycling" there were 2500 people in this ride, we went all around Tokyo, for about 40Km/25 miles.
My old Cannondale is a mountain bike, but I've changed it over to use on the road, touring tires, road bike cassette etc. I am looking to get myself a new bike at some point down the road, when I get a lot lighter, I want to start doing some touring, maybe even some camping.
Well that is me.
