Our annual cherry-blossom-viewing, beer-swilling, thingy will be on Sunday.

Exact details to follow, but typically we follow the Half-Fast Arakawa Ride to a grassy point on the river; Komatsugawa Park. There we will meet up with IAC members, briefly visit a supermarket to get more beer, and then chill out on the floor for a couple of hours while contemplating the frailty and beauty of life.

Return back to central Tokyo via a really rather splendid cherry-tree-lined route.

Probably start at 10.00 (Edit: it's 11.00) from the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills. Get to the party spot around 12.00. Spot is easy walking distance from Higashi-Oshima Station on the Shinjuku line, if non-cycling partners want to come along.

This is always good fun. Inter-breeding and good banter with the IAC crowd. Let's get some TCC along too.:D
