that looks absolutely brutal - how much of it was gravel?
Most of the climbing and descending, so maybe 40 to 50%?that looks absolutely brutal - how much of it was gravel?
Interested!If anyone is up for it, it would be fun to do something like this next month
@hat and beard's routeTime: Open to suggestions Start: Kichijoji End: Kichijoji This is a short 50km ride around the gravel roads at Tamako. I've been lazy (as far as cycling goes) lately, and been thinking of making a regular thing of this ride to get back into the swing of things. Anybody interested in joining...tokyocycle.com
If anyone is interested in a longer ride we could join it up with the gravel on tamagawa like this
Rather than the speed, the effort is the big thing off road. 130km off road feels like 200 to 250km on road and you have to make sure you fuel it and drink accordingly.You ride faster off-road than I can ride on roads...!
