About a cycling, tour with experience, a guide along, the streets of socks. Ray, snow, hot, or cold outside. You, still need a regular, right then. Go to the cycling gym with your old bike. But. The idea of this is, to make a compact, ride. I'm. The chef that's why I'm not dressed like a cyclist. And, of. Course we cannot get around the topic of production. From. A major manufacturer.

We begin our adventure I would, like to tell you the story of a bicycle, manufacturer, who kindly, agreed to provide me a bicycle, while I was in Japan. Be. Familiar, the, gabbai ashram and Satoshi Sun I met, them at the bicycle exhibition. In Moscow these, people not only invited. Me to their office and drank tea but. Also told, the story of the militia cycles, a company, with more than 100. Years of history. It's. All started, in Yokohama, in, 1894. From, a silk factory but. After, six years the, founder, name of Ishikawa began. To import English, and American bicycles, into Japan, this. Continued, until the beginning of the 1920s. Until the, family business was renamed, to bicycles, from Mauritian. Under. This brand the first Japanese, model with the beautiful, French name, Piazza, Sun, began, to be produced it, was troduce it by the way at the Dunlop tire factory. Fells. Group, in addition. To the production of bicycles. The company. Also imported. British drove motorcycles. During. The Great Kanto Earthquake, business. Was seriously, damaging but, was able to restore production, after only 50 days the. Economic, crisis on the 31st. Of the company, took revised, its policy, and released, a number of more budget, models for, stimulate, sales, so. In the city of Tokyo near, the Condor station the historical, headquarters, of marishi was, built and you. Still can find this building at the same place. During. The war production had to be closed but. Immediately, after, its end there, was a huge demand for bicycles, in. 1955. The, marishi cycles, opened its own design bureau and over. The next six years significantly. Expanded. Line up after. 60 years it, turned from an input, of bicycles. Into, a bicycle. Exporter. To the markets in the u.s. in. 1961. Bicycles. From Mauritius, changed, their name to furnish, cycles. Rapid. Economic growth began.
In Japan by the mid-70s. Technology. Began to develop and bicycle. Culture was gaining, to its peak popularity. Every. Young guy in the city with a boombox, wanted, to have a bike with a real gearbox on the frame disc. Brakes and extra, gun design and futuristic. Headlights. But. An economic, prosperity, grows so, does the man the. Boys want to drive cars not, bicycle, and the. Company, is increasingly, focusing. On the models for everyday shopping instinct. Of new interesting, culture, the. Militia cycles, is now recovering from the relocation of production, to China in 2006. The. Buyer prefer, lower price, over, better quality, and quite. Quickly the ones, of the largest bicycle money fraction in Japan turneth. Bandra, however. Marusia, cycles, manages, to maintain tradition.

Question can you say. According. To a study by the University of, Tokyo and Chu University, in 2016. Almost. Every, residence, in Japan have a bike in, 70%. Of, cases people, ride bicycles for, shopping, in either, 23%. Ride, bicycles, for a regular community, the. Average, length of 30%, of all trips is no more than 5 kilometers in. This. Case the, laws of Japan are allowed, to ride a bicycle on sidewalks, this, law appeared, in, 1978. Due, to the large number of death, involved. In cyclists, on the road and. Saw. That cycles in turn didn't. Knock down pedestrians on, the sidewalks, the, decided, clients for cycles, began to appear by. The way another, law prohibits, the use of a bicycle, ring. When. They arrived, in Japan for the first time in 2017. I noticed, with one problem bike. Parking. There. Were not many illegal parking lots and the, fines were not so serious so, the, Japanese through, bicycles, anywhere, of course, I did, it so in. 2020. The situation, changed dramatically, the number of parking lots increased, now. It's easy to park your bike under, bridges at large station, stops and shopping. Center. Bicycle. Patrol strictly. Monitor contents, with parking, gross if you, park your bike in the wrong place I mean, all sidewalks. You, will find a warning, sticker. In, the worst case if you park it your bike in the forbidden, area market. With assignment. Bike, will go to the special parking lot by, important. Truck without anesthesia.
Each. Bike in Japan has an own registration. Number like a car so, wait, for a postcard, indicating. The amount of the fine and wearing. A bike is, but. Believe, me it's. Better and easy to park your bike properly now. General. Presented our actual manifestation 1. The. Atom Nova, magazine, Catherine. Credit Roskilde a too. Treacherous dorado. Astrov. Stymie.

Far from my house in Tokyo, there, is a manova station, where are located, the Old Market and the last surviving tram system, in Tokyo, I often. Walking around this place in search of inspiration and, inexpensive.
Products, But, I didn't, think that I would be able to find not only this, here. After. Drinking excellent, local coffee I found, out that there is a second, gym nearby, this. Place is owned by mr. takahashi, Fujita, who, is also a passionate. Lover of Japanese, trains. When. I went inside I was, met by a chief from Australia, named Bradley Bradley. Told me that there is a cafe, on the first floor a japanese-style. Hotel, on the second and saikhan. Gym on the third floor I asked. You to show me what, this gym, is looks like. And. Basically. Just simply. Take. Off the rear wheel and. And. Then. You. Pair, up the Machine. And. Choose Swift or. Whichever. You. Want to ride. There, we go, well. This is the, if. You look at the screen hmm. This, is the. London. Well, it's not satan's, very high, this. Is the London loop. Here. We go. So. You. Have your. I'm, the chef that's why I'm not dressed like a cyclist. Give. You what's. The. What's how much power you're getting there, your. Rpm. And. We're on the London loop. That. All of these people. Are. Cycling, like, me somewhere, in the world mm-hmm. Everybody's, on line one the katandleigh the. United States Sweden. Japan. Oh are you and one from Russia yeah, there's a Russian writing. And. Then as you, add. More power. The. What's. Go. Up. Most. Nights these, these. Machines are all being used hmm. Yeah, almost the points yeah after, they're working, good people finish work and. Come. In yeah. You. Know, we'll. Use hard to tell from the video but it's incredibly, windy. So. You. Know people they they. They. They have a limited amount of time. And. With this, there's. No traffic lights it's. Not affected by weather or wind. And. It's much more compact. Because. The machine isn't moving mm-hmm. Everything is stopped. Still there's no momentum so. It's. A it's, a lot more. You. Burn a lot of little calories and. You you put in a lot more watts, into. The machine in a, shorter space of time hmm. So, of course cycling, outdoors is much more fun but. The idea of this is, to make a compact, ride. And. More compact, training, session, yeah, that's why people like it hmm, these, are which. Have been. Collected. From certain, cycling. Teams and. Races. And they've been signed by famous cyclists. I switched. From road, to mountain bike recently, so, I've been writing. The. The. Mountain biking, situation, in Japan is a little bit complicated mm-hmm. It, depends, on who owns. The. Trails you're writing who, owns the area. It's. Hard to explain who, is, it's. Not it's it's like an unofficial, council, who. Controls that area, of land and. They're responsible for forestry. Safety. Security. All kinds, of things to do with that particular mountain, that particular area and there's usually a. Group. Of people who, make decisions on how that land will be used quite. Quite, often no, badi even knows who owns that land it's. Common mm-hmm. And so. You. Need to get permission to, ride, mountain bikes, in. Forests. Here but. Having said that it's, actually very well-organized, when. You do right when you do find a place, that's available to, ride, you. Usually a very good cooperation, between the people who are writing, there and the people who oversee. That area. Yeah. That's, the mountain biking scene the. Road biking scene is actually pretty good to motorists. Of motorists. Are a lot more respectful, of cyclists, here than, they are in lots of lots, of other countries as, far as cycling in Japan goes I, think. It's probably one of the better places in the world to cycle, yeah. But. Of course there's too many cars, just. Me cars everywhere in the world, yeah. I think Japan is one of the places where the cooperation, with, drivers and cyclists is actually quite good and the. Thing with driving the thing with I mean the thing with cars too is that a lot of those, trips. That people make in their car are completely, unnecessary, mmm. I think people overusing, cars but with bikes I mean, it's just recreation mm-hmm. You're out riding so, of course you might be you, know on your way to work or to visit a relative or something but basically it's recreation, so you, can't really overuse, a bike whereas, overusing cars is very common I think there's. None of these trips are completely unnecessary. Bicycle. Tours what, feelings, did they arouse and me on.

Paths retailer, in. 1975. The, son of a company, founder, named Chico, Matsuda, began, making, bicycles, by his own hands, and continued. The work of his father. In, 1982. A bicycle.
