I love cycling up the Edogawa River but due to its elevated riverbank the return trip back to Tokyo with the south wind in your face can be brutal.Well, woke up yesterday, felt like my asthma was going to be a problem and decided to scrap the mountains and ride along the Edogawa up to where it meets the Tonegawa. 50km with a tailwind was nice but 50km with a headwind was not (10km/hr slower). I’m glad that I checked the cycling path out but the Arakawa is much better so I’ll probably not do it again.
It did make me think that I should explore Chiba more, though.
That is some accomplishment .a "morning ride" is how some chose to spend this GW apparently

Yeah,So I am in a wee bit of shock.
One of my riding buddies will be out of commision for a few months.
This is a guy I would blindly follow over almost any jump and follow his line on technical trails.
He is someone that often frustrates me with how simple he makes difficult trails look.
A couple days ago things took a turn for the worst that ended up with him in the ER.
On a trail I have ridden literally hundreds of times and still watched in awe as this guy glided over sections that I rumbled through...
He took a hard fall.
The result is a fractured cheek bone.
Today I visited him at home to drop off some "recovery beer" and I was just sad talking with him.
His face is swollen and the white of his eyes are solid red.
Having experienced severe head trauma myself (non bike related) - I can't help but feel for him.
No memory of the crash at all. He can recall up until about 30 second to a minute before, then nothing.
Bicyclces have risks.... on and off road.
We all know them and we all do what we can to be safe.
This is just a time when "shit happens" to good people.
Hope everyone stays safe this year!
Thanks for the well wishes, he needs it!Yeah,
Complacency is a recipe for disaster in the cycling world.
Not saying your buddy was being complacent......just saying that taking something for granted is so dangerous.
Had a fair few spills where I thought there wasn7t a hint of danger.
Hope your friend recovers soon.
To be fair, that would be a morning ride - two mornings at a push?a "morning ride" is how some chose to spend this GW apparently

Lol,If you know, you know.
Words can not express how happy, yet frustrated I am to have suddenly found this down behind the back of a fridge.
Does not compute. I had five at the last count.Going to have to sell one bike computer as don't need two, but which one to keep is the question.
Edge 830Count yourself lucky. What Garmin headunits do you have now? Do you really have to sell one? Why not keep both?
How many bikes do you have? If the answer is one, I'd get rid of one of them. If it is more than one, I might think about keeping them both.No need for both of them, is there?
I have two bikes, both with a mount for my Wahoo, but I see no need for more than one GPS unit because I will only be riding one bike or the other. And even if I'll ride together with a friend using one of my bikes, that's OK as long as one of us has a GPS.How many bikes do you have? If the answer is one, I'd get rid of one of them. If it is more than one, I might think about keeping them both.
Lenticular clouds - they sometimes form over Mt. Fuji and end up blowing in towards Tokyo.The cloud formations looked really unusual. Later on there was a beautiful full moon.
You certainly don't need another one, but perhaps it might not be worth figuring out which one to keep and selling the other.I have two bikes, both with a mount for my Wahoo, but I see no need for more than one GPS unit because I will only be riding one bike or the other.
