The mamachari is a single-speed groceries shopping bicycle that costs less than $100 in second hand bike stores, and even some new models. They are carrying people in all the Japanese cities, to the university, to the supermarket, to the izakaya (and sometimes back home too), they get lost, stolen, taken by the police if parked in the wrong place at the wrong time … but they can also do much more, like 200 km in a day.
I had several bikes and did the following trips:
Kansai 270 km
Shikoku 1300 km
Wakayama 300 km
Hokkaido 2500 km
Thailand 2600 km
Gifu 200ish km
imagine where that human powered machine can carry you
