Plot summary:

   Onoda Sakamichi is a hardcore otaku, enough for him to ride his bulky bicycle from his school to Akibahara and back every week. Now that is simply amazing, for an otaku to go all the way from the mountainous paths every week since third grade. However, the amazing part is that the entire way and back will make him travel 90 km on a heavy bike! It is not only that, the slopes around their area are too steep that ordinary bikers will have a hard time climbing on it in their bikes.

When such a rare gem was found out by the hardcore cyclist, Imaizumi, he immediately challenged Onoda to a race to dispel all of his doubts. During the race, he discovered how happy Onoda becomes when he climbs the slope. It seems that Onoda is extremely talented in cycling, regardless of the fact that he normally looks weak and pathetic. In the end, Imaizumi reached the finish line first despite it being a close race and all.

Although Onoda lost, there was the feeling of wanting to race more left within him. However, his desire as an otaku was stronger than racing. It was when he went to Akibahara and met Shikichi Naruko that he eventually decided to join the club.

And thus starts the journey of Onoda's high school years in the cycling club. Getting the attention of his seniors, the trials and challenges that Onoda has to face just piled up. With his seniors help, Onoda slowly but surely breaks down the wall that separates him and his cycling friends as a beginner.
