Why not Japan again?

Recently, the thirst for a Kirin after the onsen (hot spring) grew stronger.
Since we had such a great time cycling southern Japan in 2015 – we are planning for a new Japan cycling tour 2017!

I believe it was on Rob’s blog 14degrees.org when we saw a Bike Friday folding bike the first time. How convenient it would be in Japan if we had folding bikes!

When we met Jonas, the owner of Faltbar in Biel, weather wasn’t perfect for cycling. Nevertheless, we tested his BF New World Tourist Silk and Brompton, which helped our decision a lot! Bromptons are fun to ride, but definately not for many hours. Around 4 months later we were able to ride our own Bike Friday New World Tourist folding bicycles.

Soon these tyres will ride on the lonely backcountry roads of Japan!
