A shot from my ride this morning before I went off road and got all muddy. This is the bicycle I use for cycling the urban off road trails of Tokyo.This photo was taken at Omiya Hachiman Temple just 15 minutes from Shibuya. The temple is surrounded by park lands which also run the length of the Zenpukuji River. The more unkempt and wild parts of these parks offers some great off road challenges for the urban cyclist in Tokyo. You won't find miles of trail, but the parks offer enough variety of terrain for a morning of off road fun.
