This blog is about travelling through Japan on a foldable bicycle (Brompton) but also by train, ferry, plane, bus or any other transport, if sea, weather, mountains or the like come between me and my desire to ride.
I have tried to summarise information that could be potentially helpful also for other bicycle travellers through Japan, such as list of bicycle roads, helpful web pages etc. Once I start my ride, I will upload the actual routes taken, together with some pictures and description.

Bicycle Repair

Bicycle touring Japan - Bicycle repair

This blog post is about how my brompton gets fit for the next weeks of touring through Japan.

The days in Tokyo I have used to get my poor brompton seen by a brompton specialist just to make sure everything is still in order. Well, now I have a new rear tire (the profile was quite worn down), and even more importantly new rubbers on the brakes, which were very worn down. Plus apparently the "bottom bracket cardridge" needed to be exchanged due to some manufacturing error. I hadn't heard about that recall, but this got fixed immediately as well. 

And here it is, all fixed in front of its much more colourful cousins:
