then slog up through the dense suburbia to the mountains, then up and over them back to Kyoto.
This post is about 49-km (31-mile) ride from Kyoto to Osaka, primarily on bike paths along the rivers that cut through the concrete jungle filling the flatlands between mountains (the concrete jungle seen in this long shot of the Osaka skyline from Kyoto).
of path segments haphazardly connected by trips across bridges, around people's homes, and sometimes on the street.
The track of the ride at Strava can show you the way if you'd like to make the trip yourself sometime. road, natural midground and man-made background.) The kilter of the road and the angled lines of the background give this palpable sense of motion. I’d love to see that overcast sky burned in just a bit more but ultimately its really well done. Just a bunch of cycling butt shots would be boring for me, too, so I try to make a story about the day, or show something about Japan or the area.
Here we cross from riding along the Kamo River, over both the Uji River and the Kitsu River, just above the point they all merge to become the mighty Yodo River. Many shots on this post are boring out of the context of “here’s what the river path looks like along the way”, which is perhaps boring in its own right, but useful datapoints for those interested in making the trip themselves.

My interest in your blog is for the Japan context and watching your evolution as a photographer. Usually in cases like this the potential does not pan out, but I liked this one, especially after I adjusted the crop in post.
