thank you for your post and welcome to TCC!:welcome: Our activity fits to you very much, I think. Please feel free in this site. Where do you usually ride a bike? And do you have any plan in this Golden Week or near future?
I usually just commute from Nerima to center of Tokyo, but as often as possible I go on longer rides. I just completed the Tour de Kusatsu a few weeks ago, and have done several rides over Okutama, Tsukubasan and in Chichibu (shiraishitoge etc).
I have several plans for rides but also looking for suggestions and companions!
Good to have another "commuter" here on the forum. I commute daily in metropolitan Tokyo and would love to share my experiences with you. We are planning our next TCC tour in June, but some members usually meet up for shorter impromptu rides.
In case there's a TCC meeting in May, please join us.
