Hi, All! How are you?

If you have the luxury to spend both week-ends (Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th) on your bike, sweating and suffering then you might be interested in this ride!

It's an idea I've been pregnant with for about 2 month :) And now is its chance to see the light. The highlight of the ride is the climb to mt. Fuji's 5th station starting from Shin-Fuji st. The climb, which is 35 km long at 6%, will make you beg for mercy at the end (if you reach it).

Day 1 - Ride out from Tokyo to Shin-Fuji st. (shinkansen station):

- stop for a night at a hotel or minshuku

Day2 - Climb Mt. Fuji, ride back to Tokyo

- climb mt. Fuji from almost sea level to the 5th station:
