Hi there! I’m new here, and excited to share my Tokyo cycling experience with you.
First, a bit about me and why I’m having a Tokyo cycling experience at all. I’m originally from Toronto, and have been here for about 3.5 years already. I came to do the teaching English thing, then did some graphic design, and ended up as a grad student. I always enjoyed biking back home, but got really intrigued by the various forms of bike culture here, the two most prominent being the masses of silver coloured granny bikes that accumulate outside train stations, and the polar opposite; beautifully pimped road bikes and fixies all over the place. Urban cycling actually became a huge part of my thesis research. This research keeps me pretty busy and very entertained cuz there’s just so much going on in Tokyo. I’ll be posting the highlights here. Hope you enjoy!
