Ride on

Was biking home today along a windy riverbank. As always, I was trying to go fast, and there were these two high school students ahead that I tried and succeeded in overtaking. Ride on about another km and I turn around before making a turn and realised one of them was using me for drafting! Not going to lie, I was well impressed he knew to do that ๐Ÿ™‚ his friend was well behind so it obviously had made a difference. Glad I could help.

We have to be on the lookout for such opportunities. You never know when someone could give you a good boost!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
