Kanda Gawa (river) ride
December 8, 2007 · Print This Article
Distance: 6.15 miles
Time in motion: 49 minutes 01 second
Average speed: 7.5 mph
Max speed: 21.5 mphDue to various reasons, it’s been a kind of long time since my last ride. So despite feeling lethargic and groggy, I took the Trek 7.3 FX out for an easy ride along the nearby Kanda River. This isn’t a real river, it’s one of those cement ones, but it’s car free, tree-lined, and a pleasant place to just enjoy being on a bike. As you can see from my very low average speed, it really was just a nice Saturday afternoon joy ride, the kind you used to take as a kid. I think it’s important to take these kinds of rides, not just hardcore rides trying to set new speed records as I often do. Plus, it’s great to not have to share the riding area with cars and red lights.
