This blog chronicles the cycling adventures of Nigel Tennant, specifically his trip from England to Japan by bicycle between May – December 2007.

In the coming months, I’ll be expanding and re-organizing this blog / website to detail my passion for all things cycling-related.

Saied! Great to hear from you – I hope you and your family are happy and well.

I’m still living here in Japan, and life is good. I’m still riding the bicycle too – though not quite so far these days 😉 I commute to work each day, which is about a 40km round-trip. It keeps me healthy, and satisfies my cycling habit (for now).

If you see Mahdi, please give him my best regards. I hope life is good for you all in Tabriz – I must thank you both again for your wonderful hospitality and kindness. Almost three years later, I’m still telling everyone how great the people of Iran are – especially from Tabriz!

Nigel, I think we need to start planning another European bike tour for 2017 – yes, in 1.5 years it’ll be a decade, pops!

Yes – hard to believe a full decade will soon have passed. More than a little scary, actually. I think some ‘bicycle therapy’ is definitely in order – stay tuned!
