The Cyclist's Guide to Tokyo, a video by CNN

Byron Kidd
In June myself, and members of the Cycling Embassy of JapanFreewheeling Japan and the team from Blue Lug Hatagaya had the pleasure of guiding a crew from CNN around the backstreets of our local neighbourhood by bicycle for their CNN Asia travel series.

We're all are very proud of our local neighbourhoods, and believe that some of the best cycling to be had and discoveries to be made are right within a few kilometres of your home. Despite living in the same neighbourhood for over 10 years I'm still discovering hidden gems such as temples, parks, shops and restaurants hiding in the backstreets just a short cycling distance from home.

So when CNN visited we could have taken them on a tour of downtown Tokyo to help them get the iconic shots of Tokyo Tower, Sensoji Temple, the Imperial Palace and Rainbow Bridge with the Tokyo Bay and Odaiba in the background but most of the cycling in Tokyo isn't taking palace in those areas its taking place in suburbia. Therefore we chose to share some of the spots in our local neighbourhood of which we're so proud, many of which unfortunately did not make the final edit but despite this, I hope you can enjoy a quick look around my local neighbourhood by bicycle.
