Hi, my name's Chris. I'm a kiwi living in Koenji, which is pretty handy for jaunts along the Arakawa and Tamagawa. I also like exploring the back roads out west (where Kanagawa/Saitama meet Yamanashi). There's some great scenery out there, and some nice hills. I got my first road bike late last year, a Trek 2.1 http://bikereviews.com/road-bikes/trek/2010-trek/trek-2-1-road-bike/ , and am really happy with it. I usually ride about 100-140km a day [Edit: on days I go cycling, not every day], and average 24km/hr or so, so I'm not quite at the gung-ho level some of the characters around here ;) .

Anyways, looking forward to meeting some people and getting the wheels turning regularly.
Chris.

Oh sorry, my original post is a little ambiguous - I mean I ride 100-140km on cycling days (I've done a couple of 5-6 day rides), not 100-140km EVERY day. Yee gods no, I'm not a machine!
