After a day of cycling, I usually pick up the guitar and do a little jamming.

For Suzuki fish, small hook and sinker. I dig the sand worms in the river for bait. For eels, I use a trap with or without bait ( cut up fish )

Well, the year is closing and looks like snow tomorrow and the next day. Might just put the bike away now till the weather permits. Been good biking weather this year. Sad to say, but no camping due to the corona virus. Hope next year I'll be cycling in Okinawa during the early summer.
So today I get my bike all maintenanced up. Here is what I got done;
1. new tire 5,290 yen
2. handle grips 1,590 yen ( my grips lasted 2 years )
3. left side mirror 2,600 yen ( kind of expensive I thought , but I only see out of one eye so I needed it )
4. kilometer reader with other stuff like speed, time , calories burnt and other stuff on it. bike shop owner installed for me 4,000 yen

Well, I'm going to get all geared up for an adventurous 2021 . Getting old now, legs are fine, knees are OK. Stamina is I think pretty good. Went for a 7 hour walk 2 weeks ago. No booze, just some water, chips and a 7-11 rice ball.
Maybe next year some of you might head down south ( Yamaguchi area ) if so, drop a line

And Happy New Year and a safe riding one too!

Well, I got my first flat tire yesterday. Amazing, I haven't changed a flat tire on a bike since I was in elementary school. Well, bikes have changed since my childhood bike " Nellybell ". A cross bike is not a put to gather scrounge neighborhood bike. OK, so how long did it take me to put on a new tube. Well, I don't call myself " turtle speed cyclist " for nothing. LOL Took me 90 minutes. Oh, and I got to say I'm glad I done it at the house too.
