Hello everyone, my name is Rosalina :) . I'm a Brazilian who has been living in Tokyo for 10 years. I started to take cycling more seriously recently:bike: . My bike is not a professional one but I like it very much, it's a Sports Tokyobike. My longest ride so far was (and still is) from the starting point of Tamako Cycling Road and a circle around the Tama and Sayama lakes, which gives me tremendous shoulder ache each time I do it :eek:uch: . Also I don't know how long (in km) it is. Does anyone know it?

My next challenge is a ride from Mitaka (where I live) to Enoshima :bike: . Can anyone tell me if it's possible?

Thanks for now and hope to see you all soon.
Rosalina

Hi Rosalina,

thanks for joining our forum and welcome aboard! :welcome:

The TCC has already undertaken an unofficial tour around Tama-ko and Koganei Koen. Perhaps you can join us on one of or next short trips or a future ride in Western Tokyo. :)

Sorry to hear about your shoulder-ache. Are you sure that your stem and saddle are well-adjusted? :eek:uch:

Hi Rosalina,

well, I have been riding in this club about 4 months but I ride a bike almost 2 years.
In my free time I am always riding around Tokyo and my favorite place is Hakone.

so what's your favorite place to ride around Tokyo?

Hello Newton! My favourite place at the moment is riding from the starting point of Tamako Cycling Road until Sayama and Tamako lake. I used to live there some years ago.

Sora-san, as soon as I got the route Mitaka-Enoshima done, I'll report it. I've just bought a cycle computer and still trying to install and understand how to use it.

Thanks everyone for the support.

Hello and welcome! I have a shoulder ache as well, though I think it is due to asymmetries in my body rather than the bike adjustment. It seems to happen more often when it rains, as well, though that might be from increased stress from being mindful of the road.

Maybe get someone to look at your posture on the bike, or to videotape you; then you can look for adjustments that might be good to try.
