Welcome to 3 speed touring in Japan


Hi Everybody

Well since I have so much free time at work I've decided to start a blog about one of my hobbies which is cycling. I used to spend a lot of my time restoring vintage bicycles in New Zealand and building replica penny farthings , but in doing that I was always stuck in my workshop while my mates were out enjoying the sunshine. Since coming back to Japan I've stopped building bicycles and on my last trip home to NZ I brought back my fathers 1947 26 inch Humber Sports , which sat idle in my workshop in NZ gathering dust waiting to be restored. Well now I have it with me in Niigata and have been busy restoring it so I can ride it to work in the spring plus I'm looking forward to getting out on the bike as much as I can this year as there are some great places to explore in Niigata ken. In this blog I'll introduce you to some of the places I visit on my day's off here in Niigata and the bike that I'll be using. I am also lucky that I know of another fellow cyclist living in Niigata who shares my interested in cycle touring in rural Japan and you can check out his blog at this address http://roads-less-travelled.blogspot.com/
