Some of us will be heading out for a Boso (Chiba) run on Saturday, August 11th, and would love the company if anyone is interested in joining!

Start: Honda (誉田) Station (JR Sotobo Line)
Time: Saturday 11th, rollout 9:15 AM, back 4:30 pm
Finish: Honda Station

EDIT:
Route added (see notes below):
http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1525881


Moderate road bike pace, but the route will be fairly challenging and we want to keep to a reasonable schedule, so not recommended for absolute beginners. Thinking probably 3 combini stops.

Anyway, please let me know if you're interested!

Deej, John, are you going to ride out?

And here's the route...

http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1525881

After mapping it out, I realize this ride would be better called Pastoral Boso; not really touching on many rindos, instead tracking the quieter, pastoral routes that are more distinctly Boso(?) Anyway, should be a pleasant change of pace of the west-side Toge hunters.

The 172-173 (90km to 100km) section is new for TCC rides, although we've ridden parts of those roads before, and the bit from 22kms to 35kms is also a TCC first (although Travis and I did it in the opposite direction last spring).

Phil -- Hard to believe it's been that long! Really looking forward to it.

Thomas -- I'm not yet sure how I'll get there. Seems like an awful long way to ride. It's not the distance so much as that much of the journey would be along busy roads. Ugh. At this point, I'm leaning toward taking the train. I'll be sure to let you know my plans.

Can I join your ride? This will be my first Boso, Chiba ride. Should be a refresher from my usual west-side route...

Question: While I will take the train out to Honda, I might cycle back to Yokohama (depending on what is left on my tank). Do you have any recommended route from Honda to Central Tokyo (like Tokyo Station)?

Just wanted to clarify things. Can't wait!

Fear not, Deej.
It is definitely Saturday the 11th.
I daresay that our friend Phil has gone and caught himself up in a "cut & paste" mishap. It wouldn't surprise me if that date was perhaps... from... 4 years ago :eek:
See you there!

Cheers, Travis. I figured as much, but just wanted to be sure.

I look forward to seeing your snazzy new white shoes in person!
