Saturday morning quick ride at Bear Trail

Good morning all 🙂

It’s Sunday afternoon here in Tokyo.
I’m still a bit sleepy as I came back home late and alittle drunk last night.

We had a local fireworks event yesterday evening.
I totally missed all the fireworks festival this summer so I didn’t wanna miss it this time but you know I also wanted to ride especially when it was a beautiful autmn day like yesterday.
I mean, I couldn’t miss the biking for foreworks either.
Simply I wanted BOTH 🙂

SO
I texed John.
” Any place I could ride in the morning & don’t need to miss the fireworks? “

🙂

And his choice for yesterday was Mt. Bear a real short trail in Okutama.
It was only 19km total and we completed in 2hours and 50min.
1500kcal burnt.

It was very very beautiful ride as the road goes along with a river with a crystal clear water from the Oktama mountains.
You can hear the sounds of creek while riding for the first few miles and you’ll enjoy the fresh morning air and peaceful tender sunlight though the trees.

Morning Shinshine is the best thing

Beautiful morning with beautiful trail

Look at the blue sky!

At the trailhead

To the mountain top

Nice little trail

me and the storck is getting better to be together

There is a small shrine

I loved the Bear Trail

It was short so we started with a pretty good speed but didn’t need much water or any food.
No redbull this time either 😉

It was just like I went jogging for 10km in the morning.
Same kind of good feeling after exercise with no tired body 🙂

Plus, good thing about morning ride is, that you still have a whole day left for whatever you want to do!!

B E A R !!!!!!!!!

今週もまた自転車へ。
でーも、今回は朝のジョギング程度にちょっとだけ。

というのも、今年はことごとく花火大会のチャンスを逃してて
昨日の調布の花火大会はどうしても逃せず。
でも、花火って始まるのが意外と早いし、
早めに行かなきゃ人混みで花火なんか見えないだろうから、
チャリに行く時間はないかなぁ~
なんて思ってたんだけど、
こんなに涼しくてお天気が良い週末にチャリに行かないわけにも。

ってわけで、
死神さんだのみで
「夕方は花火行きたいから朝だけチャリいけるとこ」へ。
で、
死神チョイスは奥多摩方面のクマさん山♪
トータル19kmの簡単なコースで、
昨日はあっという間の2時間50分で終了!みじかっ

ちょっとだけの短いコースってことで、
最初からハイペースでスタート。
「今日は短かくてすぐ終わっちゃうから頑張ろう!」
ってことらしい・・・。
やっぱりスパルタ~!!!
でーも、
キレイなコースで本当に気持ちが良かった。
最初の登りの舗装道は小川がチラチラ見えて、
水の音がずっと聞こえていて、
木漏れ日がキレイで、
日差しも木影に遮られてて涼しくて。
特に朝はやっぱり良いね。
まだ葉っぱが元気で、空気がきれい。
ま、とにかくそんなお散歩ライド的な感じだったので、
食料もいらなければレッドブルも要らない
ゆる~い日でした♪

p.s. 
気がついたこと
朝早くスタートして午前中に完結すると、1日が長い!!
週末ノンビリすごすぐーたらモーニングも大好きだけど、
朝ちょっと早起きして身体を動かすって、やっぱりいい!
