BIKE FRIDAY CHANGED MY LIFE . . .
. . . AND I BELIEVE IT CAN CHANGE YOURS, TOO!

If you'd like to talk to a “non-techie” Bicycle Consultant about a Bike Friday that meets your commuting, touring, or global travel needs, call me at 800-777-0258 ext 125 or E-mail me.

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.

NEXT UP: Oct. 2014 Cycle Kyoto and the Inland Sea Islands. E-mail Ruthy for details. See pictures of past tours of the north island of Hokkaido and Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, and the Inland Sea.
 

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.
