Last night was the last time I will make the taiko commute from Stanford to Japantown before starting the big ride! It was pretty uneventful a ride. Stopped by the Bicycle Outfitter and picked up the last gear needs – brake pads and a spare seat bolt. Got the chance to thank Mark for all his help getting us onto a good tandem and riding. We had a runthrough for the Ordway and Hartford concerts that we are playing this weekend and next. We might sell out the Ordway – getting close. Would be very cool! In any case, it’s going to be a great show – a fitting farewell to eight and a half years of playing taiko with San Jose Taiko. Tying up some loose ends with school and then ready to go! Won’t be posting much from the tour (this is a biking blog 🙂 ). But, we will be on the road starting May 9! I will get some more maps up as well.
