I've been thinking it's about time I got out into the mountains again. This coming Monday I'm planning on doing the following ride:


At the moment the plan is to be at the Command Centre at about 6:30am, followed by the Spaceship at around 6:55am. There'll be a brief stop at a Family Mart at around the 40km mark, then after tackling Shiraishi-toge there'll be pizza for lunch.

Fully fuelled, the ride will continue over Ono-toge and Yamabushi-toge before ending at Hanno station (Seibu-Ikebukuro line). It's also easy enough to split off to Oume station (JR lines) at around the 120km mark.

The pace will be moderate (25-30kph) heading up into the mountains and all climbs will be WATT.

If anyone fancies joining me, let me know.

Looks a nice route!
I can prob do Sat or Mon, but not Sunday.

What sort of time do you expect to hit the 59km mark?
Any chance of starting a little later??

I'm probably up for something like this one of the days, although I would like to start earlier (How about 6:30 at the space ship?) and skip the pizza joint! ha ha ha!
The earlier start basically gets you off the river flats before it starts to get too hot.

I'll see you all at the spaceship at 6:55. I'm working tomorrow so I have to be back home by 11am so I'll probably make it to at least the family mart and hopefully quite a bit further before turning back.
