My name is Travis and I live in Chico, Ca. I am coming to Tokyo July 5-15 and was wondering what the fixed gear riding scene is like and if it would be worth bringing my bike. I ride a Raleigh Rush Hour and if it would be worth bringing it I would also like to know if anyone is down to go for a ride. Let me know what u think or if you would like to meet up and ride.
-Thanks, Travis

The east side of Tokyo (roughly from the Imperial Palace eastward toward Ibaraki and northern Chiba) is very flat, so there's not much hill climbing. Looking westward (including Shibuya, Ikebukuro, most of the suburbs and on toward Kanagawa), however, gets very hilly.
