My bicycle tires: Green Tyre

My pullup bar: DoorGym. Notice that strained muscles are painful and might have a long lasting effect. To avoid this please warm up adequately before exerting large stress (such as pullup) on muscles.

Exercise besides biking: I try to swim as regularly as possible. I can ride for about 20 mins to 世田谷区総合運動場. There it has a standard 50m indoor warm water pool and many other great facilities.
