Waking up early so I could take pictures for you folks. I'm glad I did.

The road looks busy but it wasn't. We were riding through the country side for three days, over 300km. I am pleased to announce that we had no punctures. The smoke stacks are from farmers burning the left over material from rice harvesting.

My girlfriend fell off three times due to the fact that she was riding clipless pedals for the first time but she was tough. (Coincidentally, she is Ms M. and my initials are M.B.)

After stopping at some lights I looked up and saw this. I've never seen anything like it before, maybe I just never noticed.

By the way, is this called a sun burst or a cloud burst or something else? Thanks.

I can't attach my favorite picture for some reason.

Well it was a great weekend, I hope you enjoyed the pictures.

While on my way home I came across an Italian couple cycling aswell. They seemed to like the MercatoneUno cycling we had. It sounded so cool when they said it. "MearrracahtoonehOoono"

I'll try to get that last picture done later. Sayonara.

Picks that are too wide (pixels), won't upload. Try dropping the size of the image.

They're called crepuscular rays, although they're also known as Jacob's Ladders, Ropes of Maui, Rays of Buddha, or just sunbeams.

where you were. You must have been somewhere in Japan. Possibly close to where I live. Did you and your girlfriend go to Noto Peninsula? Is the island behind you is Noto Island? The scenery looks so familiar to me.

I like you bike a lot!
Yep.hayaku

The Noto. We went from Kanazawa to Togi and saw the worlds longest bench, that was thrilling... But my girlfriend wanted to see it.

After that we rode up to Wajima, through Anamizu to Wakura where this picture was taken. Coming home the next day we passed through Himi into Toyama and took backroads home from there. We traced the Tour de Noto route for a while, you said you did it right?

And about the bike, I like it too!

Isn't Noto a great place? I love it. It is different from anywhere else in Japan that I know of.

Yes, I did the Tour de Noto this year for the first time. That was one of the best cycling experiences I've ever had. It'll be nice if I can meet you there next year. Or even before that, if that's a possibility. I have several cycling friends, and we always want to meet other cyclists in the area.
I was in Kyoto racing this year...hayaku

so I couldn't do the tour. Maybe next year. You live in Toyama don't you?

I'm in Kanazawa. feel free to email me at markburnsone@hotmail.com

Let's get together for some distance rides before the snow comes in...

Question on your handlebarsvindicator

What bar do you have on your bike? I like the angles yours have between the tops, the "ergo" section of the drops, and the bottoms.

Thanks,

Logic pro with about 3cm cut off the ends.

I wasn't too sure about them at first but I've grown to like them alot. I think that they are good for big handed people because of the triangular shape, rather than a rounder curve. They give you a flat top and a nice feeling in the drops. I highly recommend them.
