I am thinking of doing a little tour of the Izu peninsula next weekend.

This would be 70-90km on the first day, with the same distance on the second day.

The first day would be along the eastern coast and staying either in a camp site (so you would need to bring a tent and sleeping bag) or in a Ryokan further up the road - this is one I have found in the area). I am open minded towards both options, viewing one as having an adventurous charm, and the other warmth and some luxury.

On the second day, we would go up into the middle of Izu and head towards Shuzenji. I am open to suggestions on this route as well.

The provisional route can be found here:

If interested please let me know and I can then either book a place at a camp site or in the ryokan.

Chaps,

Sorry for the late response - was a bit busy with work.

I'm very tempted to heed Steve's words and leave this for another day. My knee has been playing up a bit lately: it hurt during and after the TCC/Positivo Espresso ride and it hurt again last night after I went ice skating in Akasaka. I think the cold may have something to do with it. In all, if I do ride I'll try to do it nearer home. I hope you chaps don't mind if we leave this for another day.

Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

Ice skating !

No wonder your knee hurts :p

You should stick to drinking beer - I have never has any problems with my knees from drinking beer (sauvignon blanc is also a tolerable substitute !).

Ok....well.....later then ?:D:D
