You can tell alot about a person by looking at their bike. Size, colour, type, condition and frequency of use etc. all reflect a way in which a person interacts with his/her environment.

These two guys took our bikes for a spin around town to show off to their friends. Chris nearly had a heart attack when he realised that his passport was in his handlebar bag and was being paraded around town.

Well, this is Pikochu, the sturdy little tanuki that is going to lead me through our tour. Lets hope he reads maps better than I do.

Laura Harris: Biking without training wheels!

Nakadaki, Chiba-ken, Japan  March 11, 2004

This photo captures Laura's first time riding without training wheels. She really is growing up fast. She just lost another baby tooth and is about to go into Shogako (Japanese elementary school).
Running beside her is Anna, who helped her find that balance which you never forget.

Favorite riding area: On the quite roads in the tambo (rice fields)
by her house in Japan.
