That was dumb.

I went for a bike ride today. I rode and rode and rode and rode and rode some more.
I found a nice place for a short rest, and lay down and stretched out. A couple minutes later I sat up with a jolt and spoke outloud to myself (I do that a lot)

"WHAT THE HELL DROVE ME TO RIDE MY BIKE TO THE BEACH!"

I was originally going to ride to Norie's house and back, but I couldn't find my way there, and I saw a road sign that was taunting me. It said "Kamakura Kaido(road)". So, I took the challenge, and rode my bike to the Fujisawa/Enoshima/Kamakura/Shonan area. Except of course Kamakura Kaido doesn't go all the way to Kamakura, so I had to ask at a police box.
Me: I'd like to go to Kamakura but...
Police Officer: By bike?
Me: Yes.
PO: I don't think you can. Its far. Really far.
Me: That's OK, I have all day and I used to race bikes.
PO, touchs my quad: WOW! OK, take route 16, then 246, then ask someone else because its too far for me to know the way.

It was only like 130 kilometers round trip, not super far at all.

What a total stud! And how many guys can brag their quads were touched by a Japanese policeman? Rare!
