BIKE FRIDAY CHANGED MY LIFE . . .

I wasn't a cyclist until I was in my 40's. At that time I was teaching Japanese and linguistics at a local university and driving one mile each way work. As a non-cyclist, commuting by bike did not occur to me.
When I received a research grant to go to Japan, I decided to take along a folding recumbent -- Bike Friday's SatRDay (no longer manufactured).
Over the next three years I spent my vacations touring Hokkaido, Mt. Fuji and Tokyo in my free time and fell in love with cycling.
To my delight, I met many passionate Bike Friday owners in Japan, where small wheels are widely utilized because compact bikes fit the lifestyle.
In 2003 I began working as Bike Friday's 'Ambassador to Asia.' I got a Pocket Crusoe for commuting, then a Pocket Rocket Pro to keep up with the Bike Friday lunch ride and event rides. Now I commute on my Express tikit or Speeding tikit.
TOUR JAPAN ON YOUR BIKE FRIDAY!
Interested in exploring Japan by bicycle? In 2006, at the request of some Bike Friday owners, I started organizing bicycle tours especially for BF riders and friends. Each tour explores a different part of Japan and we often join Japanese Bike Friday owners on rides. I'm your personal guide and interpreter.
If you're headed to Japan, I've written a book to help you plan your trip, whether you're staying for 2 weeks or 2 years: Living Abroad in Japan. Call Bike Friday at 800-777-0258 ext 125 to order your copy.
