August already! I had a bumper week last week, clocking up 750 km.

All before breakfast with my training buddy.



A rest week this week. Then 3 more weeks of hard work before flying out to the land down under...

Last week was an easy work week. But yes always prepare everything the night before: lunch, clothes, bike wear for the commute.

At the pool or beach with the kids in the evening for recovery!

Been in Izu for a few days. Got out on the bike for a bit of early morning riding. (Just a bit) it's amazing riding down here. Would love to spend a week just exploring the little roads sometime.




And where I spent most of my time...

That's a really nice shot.
It's an ok shot, but I prefer photos that aren't dominated by a man's willy ;)[/QUOTE]

Okay, but I look at it and wonder how I might make a similar pic (sans willy).

I don't think I could. So something happened there photographically that shows action/energy, that I, enviously, could not replicate. (or it would take me forever)

After changing the pawl spring in my rear wheel I have had some creaking from somewhere. The back wheel I am suspecting. So I swapped out the pawl spring to a new one which has substantially more spring in it. So hopefully I'll have a silent bike tomorrow.
It's all sparkly again after a wet ride this week so all ready to go for tomorrow's west Tokyo mission.
I'm drenched now. Man it's hot out!

This one's for you jdd!



Legs were good this morning after an easy week. I promised these two it was a recovery ride!

Just watching the tour of Japan race in oshima. There's a break of about 8 riders. The guy in the front decides to do a Froome and ride on the top bar instead of the seat..... On the flat... Needless to say the peloton caught them in about 30 seconds :flip::flip:
What a clown.

Someone in the neighborhood got a nice delivery recently, as this was in the cardboard gomi:
