I was just surfing online and I was shocked to see this site! I will be departing (in July 2006) for Japan soon, will be in the Kanto Plain region at a base called Yokota AB. I have been stationed there before from 1997-2003, left for California and now I'm going back....HAPPY! This will be my first time cycling in Japan, the last time I was there it was more partying than riding....LOL. Is their anyone nearby to connect with on some freeride cycling hotspots? I'm currently on an island called Diego Garcia. The island is restricted and belongs to the UK.
