The Tokyo Bicycle Swap Meet

While we were in Tokyo, we were lucky enough to meet up with Danny from Cyclism.jp and go to a local cycling club’s biannual swap meet. Swap meets are my favorite. They’re the best way to really get a finger on the pulse of the most passionate and creative expressions of cycling in a community.

Tokyo’s swap meet was no exception. Here are some pictures:
