I am an immigrant (2003) from Japan in Canada. I have started road biking since 2018. I never thought it would be something I would be interested in.
Indeed, I grew up in a pancake flat area and had only ridden a Mama-chari or Japanese utility bicycle (single speed steel bike) for going to school when I was a teenager.
I qualified for the UCI World Championships 2021 in Sarajevo in my age category (F50-54). Also I finished 9/80 in my division in the Gran Fondo Whistler 2022.
I now blog about my biking experiences in Japanese and have the 3rd most read Japanese blog for overseas cycling.
