Bicycle Maru New Year Ride

A few shots from last Tuesday's Bicycle Maru New Year Ride. Maru was riding his very nice Salsa Marrakesh...


Now with added Bruce Gordon Rock n'Road goodness...


Takao-san had brought his beastly Blackborrow, this was going to be an off road adventure...


The destination was Yadayama Park a short but fairly constant climb. The sound of a fleet of fatbikes rolling along the quiet Nara morning roads is something to be heard...


Stopping on the way to meet up with Nuho-san who was keen to try out Takao's monster Salsa...


And Maru's demo bike...


Nuho had brought along his very nice Monk...


 Up at the park we hooked up with Mike and Larry who had taken the sensible road way up...


There was more bike swapping action and then Maru and the crew took off further into the mountains. We took the easy descent down into Tomio with Mike and Larry for coffee, there's only so much cold, wet slippy off roading we can take these days!



A big thanks as always to Maru and the Nara crew for a fun and very tiring first ride of the year.
