Thanks for the info. I think I’ve done Sadamine from the Tokigawa side before and maybe the ‘daisy’ climb you mentioned earlier in the thread, but I’m definitely not so familiar with that area. I might try and climb something round there when I’m out tomorrow🤔

I heard you can get a fair shift on up a bit of vertical when you want to😁 A race bike is what you really need!

Thanks for organizing the ride @luka! Was nice to meet @Mfebrian and @leicaman (note to self: not wise to try following leicaman's wheel up a climb 🙃 ). The sun was pretty intense on the first hill up to the lower half of Mitsumine . Curiously, was feeling quite a bit better at the end going back into town, finally got acclimated to the heat.
