    Hello from Japan

    Hiya.

    Im a Brit living in Japan.

    Ive just bought a Giant MTB which I am not 100% happy with.

    Great price, good spec, but..........see my other post.

    Im new to mountain biking, I got a bike cos my wife says Im a fat pig (which is true) so I need some exercise.

    Im not going to do any hardcore downhill as I had a bad accident on a bike before so I am a little nervous, I enjoy a nice cruise on/offroad.

    thats about it.

    Where do you ride off road in Japan? I assume, as you are not a native Japanese, you would be most likely living in the east, like around the Tokyo/Kyoto/Nara/Osaka mega-city. I had a girlfriend from Tokyo once, and we went over from the US to see her family. We toured around quite a bit in the east and all the way south to Nagasaki, and there didn't seem tbe many places to do some off-road biking. Maybe the rual areas were there but I just missed them?
