Alright, one error was replaced with another as episode 2 is up for subscribers, but episode 1 now can't be watched for free. Given the wording of the arrangement, episode 1 is supposed to be free for everybody from today onward, but that's not the case here.

Episode 2

Ami's first biking trip is to go to the beach in Miura, and while it's child's play for the other three girls, Ami herself just doesn't have the strength. So after having a meal to recharge her energy she manages to make it all the way on her new bike and thus, her first great memory of with Hinako and Yayoi. That was nice to see Ami getting the drive that she needed to make it to the end seeing that she's just getting started.

Episode 3

Now Ami sees why those bikes at Alpaca Cycle cost so much more as they are better for uphill riding than that folding bike she has. Ami just doesn't have the fitness level to make that long trek as she cramped up halfway in, so that outing ends prematurely. Then she goes with Aoi and meets that biker with the dog, and she instantly fell in love with her road bike. So here, Ami learns some things about what it takes to be a cyclist seeing that she has been trying to do too much not realizing that she's just a beginner at this.

Long Riders! EP 3 "A New World"

BTW sites are for real!

What a great anime this is turning out to be it a good story has just the right amount of light comedy but very serious as Ami got severe leg cramping climbing a pass Friend ship is very well defined here as Aoi stops her from riding along with Hinako Later Hinako / Yayoi worries she might stop[ Aoi invites her on a trip to the a highest pass on The National Highway in Japan There a new rider ( Saki ) Ami meets and later meet again and Saki explains how a road bike is much easier to ride on hills / long trips. I am surprsed the 2 serious riders Hinako / Yayoi didnt think of this as her folding bike is not up to the task. Looks like Ami thinking of adding another bike!

This akin to Encouragement of Climb as Ami VA Nao Toyama played Honoka ( Photographer )

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nao_T%C5%8Dyama

Ami was very hurt and the girls all agree to call it a day despite Ami saying she was alright



Hinako is concernced Ami might stop riding



Saki explains Road Bikes



BONUS INFRO / The Pic ans Higway are real to detail for the anime ( amazing stuff )

This scene was in the Anime ( I think there must be more )




Shiga Kusatsu Kogen Route (National highway No. 292)

The Shiga Kusatsu Kogen Route includes mountains with a height beyond 2000m such as Mt. Shirane and Mt. Yokote and is a mountain route that connects Kusatsu-machi in Gunma prefecture and Yamanouchi-machi in Nagano prefecture. Along the route is an observation deck at a height of 2,172km, the highest view point on Japan's national highways and it is a photography point for many cameramen. In autumn, the contrast between the red of the rowan, the yellow of the Erman's birch, and the green of the ground bamboo (Sasa kurilensis) decorates Mount Shirane.

While this may not be anything special, it's still enjoyable. Not much to say, this time it's "cute girls riding bicycles". I actually find Ami's nature and such funny. Also, those eyes, kawaii!

And of course, Wcdonalds? Seriously?

Long Riders! EP 4 "A Secret Part-time Job"

What looks like a filler episode or even maybe so it is kinda of important as it shows how the girls are serious about their bike riding as it costs $$$.

Ami decicdes that a road bike is needed to keep taling rides is she is to complete them. She finds one on sale and in a month or 2 she could afford it as the Alpaca salespesson lets her do layaway since she's friend withe the rest and a customer . But a catch the bike needs pedals lights bottle holders which are extra . Another worker at her PT job tells her she could make good money at a maisd cafe which she wont tell the others what it is

We get a get a closer look at Hinako as she has too work at her family's chinese restaraunt .She' no crazy about the outfit she weayrs and takes it out on the customers who come to see her. Aoi Ami and Yarori come tp visit upsetting her more.

Later Aoi Yayori Hinato spy on Ami and discover it is a maid cafe not somethimg risque like Aoi feared. Butshe becomes known s the clumsy maid and then the blushing maid as the MGR just like it as it brings in customers.

The Alpaca salesperson and that hat > Ami finds a bike thoiugh !



Hinato goes Tsundere



Yayori / Hinato like to tease!



Confirming above !


Long Riders TV Anime Episode 5 Also Delayed by 1 Week

The official website for the Long Riders! television anime announced on Saturday that the fifth episode has been pushed back by one week due to production schedule delays. Instead, the special compilation episode "Watashi no Cycle Album" (My Cycle Album) will air on all stations next week. The anime's official website and Twitter account will report the future broadcast dates as soon as they are decided.

The anime's third episode was similarly delayed last month, and was replaced with a repeat of the first episode

Great episode. Hinako dressed in cheongsam? Nice. Loved her tsundere mode. And Ami works in a maid cafe? Great. Her clumsy mode is great as well.

Finally got around to watching last weeks episode. I was really busy last weekend so I only watched what I was really enjoying on Saturday. (I'm busy this weekend, but whatever) It was a funny episode, had a bunch of cute scenes that I liked. Cycling is expensive just like any hobby out there.



I'm on the fence on putting this series 'on hold' or not. I'm enjoying it and it's not like I'm 'forcing' myself to watch it. Knowing Actas with delays and the amount of 'quality' this series has, makes me want to wait for the BDs. I already have like 7 other shows I'm watching on Saturday so putting one or two 'on hold' would help clear some time up. Although there's two other series that are on Saturday I'd put 'on hold' before this one. (if anyone wants to know it would be Izetta and Occult;Nine) Although stated before with Actas it makes Long Riders more tempting.

Long Riders! EP 5

It was worth the 2 week wait as the animation was stellar and the story was predictable but very good slice of life like Non-Non Biyori or Poco Udon feels this week

Ami gets her Road Bike .They all meet at Alpaca where Hinako / Yayoi gave her some accessories as a gift



They all go for a ride / they stop and want to meet up with another member of Hinako's club



It was the girl Ani / Aoi met on the pass Saki



Ami's eyes are red so Hinako says she needs riding glasses and a flat tire repair kit

Hinako / Saki want Ami / Aoi to join their club to be official ( those expressions) and Hinako has to wear another risque outfit at the restaraunt



Ami has to ride by herself because everybody is busy / she does well until she doesnt pay attention to the rider she caught up and not knowing hand signals hits a pothole and gets a flat . She did buy the repair kits but blows up 2 tubes. A bunch of riders wearing the same Jersey Hinako wears and give her another tube and show her how to do it as she probally pinched the tube causing them to burst



Later Ami makes it to the dairy farm where she has soft serve and takes a pic . Earlier she texted she was going for soft serve and Aoi had founs some time to ride and meets her there It is there she explains to Aoi she wants to ride together not alone!

That smile was awesome / you can almost feel the happiness
