I took these pictures outside the entrance to the Tsukishima subway station, near Shibuya (Tokyo). As opposed to forgetting where you parked your car- at least the walk through the 'parking lot' is shorter when you are in bicycle parking!
I myself have not been brave enough to ride my bike off base- it is way too crazy for me! Plus, I need to get a bell to ring at people on the sidewalk so they can get out of my way. I am not joking, when you are walking on a sidewalk and hear a bell ringing, you step to the side so as not to get run over.
Next I must get a picture of someone riding their bike holding an umbrella- as I have seen on many a rainy day. Now THAT is dedication my friends! (illegal apparently- but still dedicated...)
