Finally some great weather.

How good is the weather we are having. Finally we are free from the weekly typhoons that we were having. The hot weather has gone, gone, gone!!!! and now it's getting cool in the mornings and evenings. I love this time of year.

It is however, a little difficult to decide what to wear when I'm riding these days however. It's cold in the morning, and warm throughout the day. Too much and I'll melt, too little and I'll freeze. It's the cyclists dilemma :).

Enjoy your Autumn.


I've done it.

This year I'd set myself a cycling goal.

300 kilometers a week, for 52 weeks.
A total of 15600 kilometers!!!!

As of today, November 1st, I'm sitting on 15601 kilometers recorded through my Garmin.... Yes!!! I've done it.

And, I still have the best part of 2 months to go.

My first extended goal is 10000 miles, or 16094 kilometers.... Onward and upward!!!!


Sometimes it's the details

I'm a cyclist. Love cycling and love bikes. I also love riding out in the mountains where you can see nature in all its beauty.

And, sometimes it's nice to get right in close and notice the details.


Election is run and done.

Yet another election has been done here in Japan. I believe this is the second time that they have called an early election. I do think it's a massive waste of money and I just don't understand why this is allowed.

Then again, I'm not much into politics myself. I have no idea where I'd sit on the political scale, left or right or whatever.

I like to think I take ideas at face value.

It appears the rainy season has arrived.

High humidity.... check.
Raining on and off.... check.

I guess it's time for them to officially state that the rainy season has arrived..... check.

After all these years I still don't understand. Yes, this is a time of year that is building into the full heat of summer, and yes, it's humid as anything. But can't they change the name to something else. The one thing it doesn't do so much is actually rain. If it rained during this season, it would actually make it more bearable I believe.

I'm sure I've ranted about this many times before, and this will not be my last time.

I'm not a fan of Summer. Can not wait for Winter already, and we're not even in the full force of Summer yet. Oh dear.
