Japan and a year’s cycling stats

We have about 40km to ride to Chitose, south of Sapporo, from where we shortly fly out of Japan and finish our year of riding. Bicycles are simply the best way to travel and have allowed us to see so much more of Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, New Zealand and Japan than any other modes of transport.

Japan stats as follows.

  • Distance ridden – 3,564km
  • Days riding – 38
  • Average daily distance – 94km
  • Longest day – 141km from Muryama to Nr. Minamisaniku
  • Punctures – as before just one
  • Mechanicals – Many, which I recounted previously with fortunately no more to add
  • Other cyclists – 34
  • Pies – still at 33
