The gutsy cyclist who's overcome repeated injuries Cycling

Nickname:

i enjoy

I love feeling the wind against my face when I'm cycling. I can feel my energy transferring to my pedals and it encourages me to push myself even more. (Kanuma)

Strong points

Tandem cycling is powerful in that there are two cyclists who must synchronize. Difficult times are an opportunity to push myself to work harder. Because I have a partner, I feel like our race time can be endlessly improved as long as we work together.
