Hey everybody,
this is the full video of my Hinohara ascending and Okutama descending workout.
Perhaps you can use the video as trainer companion or you can simply enjoy watching me suffer :smiley: and get some ideas for your future cycling holidays.

Palace Loops -Tokyo | 皇居練 - 東京 (full length, no music) | Trainer companion

Hey fellow athletes,
As our lives are still ruled by the iron fist of Covid-19, I hope you are all doing well.

This video is supposed to be a motivational video and can be used as a trainer companion.
It was taken before the lock down. You may have seen it before as a short version with music.

This time it’s the whole clip without music.

Slowly but surely things are going back to normal at least here in Japan.
However, numbers of positive tests are going up again. But that was expected after going back to normal. Nevertheless, I believe it won’t be as dramatic as in the U.S.
If you still can’t or don’t want to go out you can now enjoy the beautiful morning around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on your indoor trainer.

See you next time.
Stay safe, stay strong.

Get on your bike and be AWESOME !!!

Hey fellow athletes,
As our lives continue to be governed by Covid-19 I hope you are all doing well.

Around Cazu campsite are plenty of opportunities to climb. The streets can be quite steep but the conditions are good. It can get really really fast. You really should try if you get the chance. But for now you can enjoy this clip as a trainer companion during one of your FTP workouts.
Please let me know what you think.

See you next time.
Stay safe, stay strong.

Get on your bike and be AWESOME !!!

DOUBLE CLIMB | Minamikawa & Minami【ダブルクライム | 大字南川 & 大字南 】

Before I went back home from Cazu campsite I took advantage of the crazy climbs around there and tackled two of them. They have sections of over 20% and can be really scary on rim brakes.
But have a look for yourself and let me know about the crazy climbs in your area. What’s the steepest climb you’ve managed so far?

Please let me know what you think about the video.
Stay safe, stay strong.

This is an example of how not to train outdoors…

I went on a random ride, just taking turns as I felt like it. I only realised where I was just after I’d passed the path that leads to the bridge.
Decided to give it a go anyway, a truly stupid idea when you’re on 23 mm slicks and facing a slime covered river-crossing…

Still, it was warm enough I’d dried out a short way down the road :slight_smile:

Slimy. I got slimy… Very minor graze, nothing to worry about. The only stressful or painful outcome from this was the work to get the green algae mark out of my jersey :smiley:

Hey everybody,

This video covers my way home from Cazu campsite. It’s over 3h long so it’s best to use as a trainer companion for long endurance rides. It’s flat and mainly along rivers and cycle paths.
Feel free to use it group workouts etc.

Please let me know what you think about the video.

See you next time.
Stay safe, stay strong.

Hi everybody, this time I ride up the Yabitsu pass (and down). It’s a very famous climb for road cyclists from Kanagawa and Tokyo. Again, it’s a pure climbing video including the descend. Perfect as a trainer companion for rides of intermediate length. There will be a little bit of sightseeing as well.
