(Edited to V2.1)

NEW DATE, NEW ROUTE

Start & Finish: Honda Station (誉田駅), Chiba. South exit.
Date: Wed 29th, 9:15am meet, 9:30am rollout. Should be back to the station by 3pm or 4pm.
Route:

Mostly familiar back roads on the way south, but a brand new route back to Honda. Slightly more trafficked than our usual roads, but we avoid repeating the same old Lake Takataki <> Honda run. Fairly pacey ride, but a little bit easier in terms of the up-and-down than the normal Boso offering?

Let us know here if you're in, or just show up at the station on the day.

The planets witll have to align...
Planet Hayfever (eclipsed).
Planet weather. (don't look at the weather report).
Planet wife not working.
Planet kids prepared to look after the puppies. (I'm the only one doing that at the moment).

If I'm there, I'll be there (will call either Phil or Dave as I'm on my way)...if not, I'll be still in bed.

Edited the top post to add route map and other details.

Pete > hope you can make it away from the puppies :) If you're driving down there are a couple of pay lots right by the station and on the 128 just off the 20. Or you can park at my place and we can ride to the station (15kms).

Im in

Whether or not is decided by the weather as always. I await your decision, cancel, postpone or GO

Hope you can make it Pete.

Cancelled

Well, the weatherman is quite insistent that it will be a dark and stormy Saturday, so we'd best cancel this one. Pete, Alan, thanks for the interest--sorry it didn't work out.

Possibly David and I might try to do the same or similar ride on Monday; I'll post here if we do in case any freeters want to join.

I may go for a ride tonight and see how long I can stay out....Will make a rainy Saturday in bed by the puppies worthwhile.

I'm suffering from withdrawal...haven't ridden since Monday. Haven't had a good ride in ages.

Would be nice to get in a Mt. Tsukuba ride or another Boso over Golden Week.

So far I think the roster is

Tomorrow...

Two definites I think, and possibly Naomi, with or without AlanW?

The weather is looking great, sunny, high teens, less windy than the last couple of days. Hmmm, tempted to add a few loops and make this a bit more epic... :)

In any case, see you all (you one?) at Honda St at 9:15.

(Oh, forgot to mention earlier that I won't have my car, so bike bags etc. will have to be carried if coming by train.)
