Wherever you go in Tokyo you see people on bicycles. They're everywhere and you're even allowed to ride them on the pavement(which is illegal in England and can result in a twenty pound on the spot fine).

I've now got a bike and a very nice one it is too! Apparently the Japanese word for my bike is 'mamachari', which means 'a bicycle for mum'. On the front of it I have a huge basket and on the frame there is a sticker that says 'Flower Story'. So it's not really the most masculine form of transport, but it does get me everywhere more quickly. I just hope I don't manage to have any collisions with anyone or cause any fatalities.
