I have been reading the forums for a while but have just now realized that I should introduce myself, oops!

I am from West Coast Canada and have lived in various areas of Japan off and on for the last decade or so. I ride a Trek 2300 that, of course, has been mostly customized at this point. Although I have been in Tokyo for quite a while I have never really been able to get into the rhythm of riding here (traffic lights, traffic lights, traffic lights ;) )

This year I am really looking forward to getting out on the road and bringing my mileage up to a respectable level. Although I used to race and do long tours (200k+) I am just getting back into shape and I am definitely looking at novice/moderate rides now. I ride solo a lot but will be happy to head out on TCC rides this year to mix up my routine.

Hope to see you all on the roads this year!

Welcome... I recently moved to Tokyo and also haven't yet found a training rhythm here with navigating the area.

I'm curious about your bike... Trek 2300, circa 1993??? If so, I remember that bike well as the top-tier Trek when they were introducing their first carbon bikes. Haven't seen one in years. Take care.
