Och Aye, dinnae fash yersel' fur me like.

Hi there,
I'm a Scot from Glasgow currently in Japan TEFLing and liking the bike culture here. Almost everyone drives the cheapest bikes imaginable here-enter "mamachari" into Google Images to see what I mean. I used to live in Braemar and that was my only time of real mountain biking, which was great fun and something I intend to return to. I switched from a MTB forum because I kinda gathered I was in the wrong place, tho this wasn't intimated to me in any way by the other riders, who all seemed commited and responsible. Did you know that a fit human on a bicycle can cover more ground per day than any land animal?
I intend to graduate from half-day sightseeing rides in Japan to a full week or two on the road, but I need a partner and time off. My bike is at the bottom end of decent, or at least not laughable; a Merida Freeway 9300, Alu 7005 with Acera components. It's a 48cm frame and I'm only 5 foot 7 but I love it anyway. I used to know a guy who was 5 foot or less who would ride a Z1 motorbike so it's not that extreme!
just saying hello
