Early Morning Ride

DSC07328

EN: Knowing the forecast (+28 and sunny), I wanted to avoid the heat and all the weekend crowds, which is very easy to do, if you leave your home on Sunday morning at 6AM. By the time all the Tokyoites rolled out on their 30kg mamacharis I was already at home. Very early morning rides in Tokyo are unique, the atmosphere is different in the city, which is just slowly waking up, almost noone on the streets (drunk people around izakayas, mostly), almost no cars, just chill. I rode all the way to Koto ward, where I checked out few parks (Oyokogawa Water Park in particular, which was very pleasing), then I reached Asakusa, rode through Arakawa and returned back to Nakano. I will definitely do this more often in the future.

SK: Predpoveď počasia na dnešný deň som veľmi dobre poznal (+28 a slnečno), práve preto som bicykel naštartoval už o 6 ráno a vydal som sa na rannú jazdu do časti Tokia zvanej Koto, kde som chcel preskúmať niekoľko parkov, ktoré som predtým nenavštívil. Ranná jazda v Tokiu po uliciach mesta má svoju zvláštnu atmosféru, chodníky a cesty sú takmer prázdne (v Nakano som spočiatku narazil na mierne opitých ľudí odchádzajúcich domov z barov a krčiem), teplota bola ideálna. V Koto som si užil hlavne park Oyokogawa Water Park, presunul som sa pod Tokyo Skytree v časti Asakusa a napokon som prebehol aj cez Arakawu, potom som si to už namieril domov. Dorazil som v čase, kedy sa lokálni so svojimi 30kg ťažkými rárohami začali ešte len zjavovať na cestách, takže toto si určite zopakujem.
