9/26 Escalante, Bryce canyon National park ~happiest day~



9/26 Fine day from Panguitch to Escalamte
Today was the happiest day for bamboo bike and me. Because we met Michael who came from Netherlamd. He was always smile and friendly, gentleman and taught me how to ride and more things. I was inspired so much. Though I started biking from this April, I enjoyed biking today the best!  Its fun ride! And I was taught much. " Speed is not important. Keep pace, feeling good, and sometimes change pace"I will keep in mind. Thanks so much, Michael!
 I have some dreams, one of my dream is seeing Ajax soccer game at Amsterdam Arena.  I am big fun of Ajax and Netherland football. I want to see the game with Michael someday,sure! See you again, Michael!





Bamboo bike visited Bryce Canyon National Parks with Michael, It was beautiful place I have not seen. Big, wide, natural statue of red rocks! Tat was artistic. And bamboo bikes was took many  photos by many visitors.  The face of Bamboo bike was getting red(shame.haha) But got good promotion today! I delivered about 20 business cards today. Bamboo Samurai, Happy!






At the near of cannonville bamboo bike said good-bye to Michael, From him I learned very much. How to ride, keep pace, relax, always smile, and he packed well and fix flat tire so quickly. I was inspired. And I think I should be both professionals of biking and bamboo. And I noticed that bike-loving people loved "nature".


After that bamboo bike went to Escalante, on the way bamboo bike must climb steep uphill, I could hardly go ahead, and wanted to say " Go home!" I stood on the earth many times. I named that uphills "crying hamsrtring".  Bamboo bike stayed State park in Escalante, ccoked dinner Ramen and 2 breads with jam.
And bamboo bike slipped down at the hill climb for the first time, I was a little injured on the knee of my left leg. I did not find the rode side with many small  stones, and front tire slipped. Sorry bamboo bike, it was my mistake. So sorry.     Takashi 2010/9/26 Escalante State Park


ユタ州エスカランテに向けて走ります。4月より自転車に乗り出しましたが、今日ほどサイクリングを楽しんだ日はないです。オランダからきて、サンフランシスコ~ヨセミテ公園そして、ラスベガスにむけて自転車で旅しているマイケルと出会い、手取り足とり、いろいろなことを一緒二走りながら、教えてもらいました。ブライスキャ二オン国立公園にマイケルとともに訪れました。たくさんの方々から記念撮影を頼まれ、大変嬉しかったです。イタリアでもフランスでも竹自転車は目新しいものなのだと気付きました。マイケルとお別れ。もうすこし一緒に走りたかった。いつか、マイケルとオランダアヤックスのサッカーの試合を見に行きます。エスカランテに向かう途中で初めて転倒しました。わき道の小石に前輪をとられての転倒です。大きな怪我ではなく、竹自転車も頑丈なので、平気! 今日は多くのことを経験し学んだとても素敵な一日でした。
