Daily Life


Though my enthusiasm has waned over the past few years due to various factors, I’m a committed-enough cyclist to be worthy of the name, cyclepath.

And cycle paths are where you’ll find me in the pre-dawn (or early dawn) hours of most weekdays.

Every morning I rise at 4 (by which time it’s already light in Tokyo at this time of the year), pour myself into increasingly tighter lycra and get out on my bike.

I get out before I start thinking.

Once I start thinking, I will talk myself out of riding.

I’m basically not an exerciser, and am by nature a sloth.

So it doesn’t take much to keep me off the bike.
