Hi, My name is David and I am a High School teacher (43 yrs) from Wollongong NSW Australia.
I am visiting Tokyo next week and I'd like to explore the idea of getting out on a bike to keep up my fitness.
I currently ride with my local cycling club (Illawarra Cycling Club) and, from time to time, I will compete in club races - road racing and track/velodrome (C Grade level). I am on Strava "David C Deitz".
Staying in Ikebukuro, I would need to hire a bicycle. From my internet searching, it would seem as though there may be one or two options - eg GS Astuto who suggested this forum to me.
I have no idea of where to ride - so if I am able to hire a bike, I really would like to meet up with a group and head out on a ride.
Sunday 25 September is the day I have set aside for riding - I hope the weather will be fine and sunny
Also, I may have the morning of Tuesday 27 September available to squeeze in a second ride.
If you have any advice for me regarding my visit and/or tips regarding a hire bike/where to ride, I would be extremely grateful.
