Biwakoguma: Osaka to Tokyo

Riding a handmade bicycle is something special; riding a steel frame made with your own hands takes things to an entirely different level. In a photo story for Rapha I followed Tsuyoshi Ishizu, Japanese frame builder, cycling from Osaka to Tokyo with his 10-year-old son to test one of his latest creations.

Lovely pics, Lee! Thanks for sharing. Must have been a really fun project to work on!!!

I've ridden Tokyo to Kyoto along the 1 road, which is a bit of a slog! But it looks like they took a much nicer scenic route?

Thanks Mark! Other than riding in the sauna conditions it was a lot of fun. Not 100% scenic though, but thats the beauty of editing.
