Night Pedal Cruising, The Tokyo Ride

Byron Kidd
This months Night Pedal Cruising ride takes in some of the more popular sightseeing spots of Tokyo and is one not to miss.

Riders will gather at the Aoyama United Nations University Farmers Market at 5:30pm on Saturday May 17, and will set off at 6:00pm. A little longer than the usual Night Pedal Cruising rides the route will pass through  Aoyama Ichome and Akasakamitsuke before swinging by the Imperial Palace  to Tokyo Station where riders can enjoy a short break and great night time photo opportunities.  Frm there the ride will continue through Akihabara to Ueno Park and Ueno Station before ending up in front of Kaminari-mon in Asakusa.

If you're new to Tokyo or just visiting this is a great way to take in the sights of the city, at night, from the vantage point of your bicycle which allows you to really experience the city, not just observe it from behind the window of a car or bus.

The pace is slow, the distance not too great, and the company is excellent.

I always like to dress up or decorate my bike in a way that fits the theme of the ride so I believe on this rile I'll be wearing a chonmage wig and jinbei. Don't be shy!

As always it is recommended that you ride with both front and rear lights, bring your camera and if possible a radio or other sound system.

Full details about the ride can be found here.
