I was supposed to enjoy backcountry skiing in the Golden Week, but I came back from Hakuba due to the thin snow and the bad weather.

Entering into the cycling season.

The bike today, GIANT DEFY, is usually placed in Hakuba, but I brought it to Tokyo.
The rear derailleur was not working well, and I went to GIANT store for its repair.

It was fixed and I became able to run well.

Running along Tama river.

Mt. Fuji has some snow.

Arrived in Hamura in 2 hours 15 minutes.

It is much slower than usual.
I was supposed to be faster with this bike.
I am not able to run faster as the season has just begun.

A burger restaurant.

Usually it would not be so crowded at this time, but it is in the Golden Week.
4 parties with ten people in front of me, but I was able to be seated soon.

It was hard to finish as I don't eat too much recently.

I saw many camera men at the rail bridge of Chuo line.

They are manias for taking photos of a special train.

On the way back I stopped by Daiei HimonYa, a supermarket closing today.

I attempted to drop by a brasserie, but all bread was sold out.

I finished at 5:40 pm.

And I found my front tire flat.

I did not bring a spare.
Not sure I was lucky or unlucky.
