Well the first entry in the Whistler chronicles does not start in Whistler but Kyoto Japan. I decided to go to Whistler via Tokyo to get in some business meetings and some riding over the weekend. So I travelled down to Kyoto and met up with Vincent Flanagan, an aussie MTB legend from the 80s and 90s who has been living in Kyoto area for 17 years. He knows the area well and runs bike tours in the spring and autumn for international groups of 10 or so people over 10 days riding around the surrounding area.
