Hi. I have posted a little already but I haven't introduced myself. I am originally from the UK, where I raced in 10 and 25 mile time trials in the early 1990s, as well as the odd crit and road race. Just got back into recreational cycling in the last 18 months, and have recently bought a proper road bike with a view to competing in local hill climbs here in Fukuoka prefecture. I rarely make it up to Tokyo but if any members are heading to Kyushu let me know and we can ride together. I usually try and do 200-300 kms a week, including a few hills.

Welcome. Some of us have been to Kyushu in the past, watch the threads. I myself would like to ride the route Nagasaki - Aso National Park - Oita but never found the time. Must plan for this some day.

Hey, I recently moved to Oita-ken so not too far from Fukuoka. I actually used to live there.. Possibly one of the best cities ever!!!

I currently only have a fixed gear bike over here as my commute is about 20 miles two days of the week. But I'm looking to buy a road bike as soon as I get the money!

Anyway, nice to know there's a fellow Brit cyclist in the area!

Welcome to Kyushu !
And always welcome for a ride around Izumi, 2 stops before Kagoshima on the shinkansen from Fukuoka. Really recommended in winter when thousands of cranes are hibernating here.
