I’m certain that global warming is a thing.
I’ve been in Japan long enough now to have experienced enough summers to have gained a fairly good understanding of what “normally” happens in summer to know that what we’ve seen this year is rather extraordinary. Record temperatures followed by record breaking typhoons. Maybe it’s time we looked at this differently and started looking for solutions rather than just blame. Ok, rant over.
My year on the bike is going well. I have just passed 26,000 kilometers. My goal im is reachable but still not going to be easy.
Home can mean many things to many people. For some, it's where they grew up. For others it's the place where their parents reside. For me, it's where I am right now. My family live in many different places and it's hard to pin down exactly where and what. The house where I grew up is no longer owned by my family, so that's gone. My parents new house is not familiar to me. But, here I am, with my own family, living in my own home. Where's your home?
Anan City, you have some beauty
I tend to spend a lot of my riding time heading out of Anan city and into the mountains or further afield. However, we do have some amazing places within the city limits. Gamoda is no exception to this. It's a slightly hilly ride out to the cape, but boy, it's worth it.
Summer morning is the best
Getting up early in Summer and riding is the best thing you can do... I'm sold.
I took my fixed gear up to Naka-cho this morning and I loved it. It did get a little warm once the sun came out though.
