If anyone is looking to thrash themselves, we are having a Blue Monkey Lodge Training camp this weekend. 2 days - 5-6hours/day - solid pace, leaving 9am Saturday from the lodge, and Sunday we roll out at 7am. The BMC boys are up, as are a few elite MTB'rs out for a roll on their roadies. Will be a solid group and if you a seeking a challenge or just want to get some good kms in the legs, jump in and come for a roll. Also, remember that TCCérs get a discount at the www.bmonkeylodge.com, so an overnight stay with two meals is only 6500yen. Cheap! All stays inlcude hard suffering on long climbs at no extra charge Give me shout if your keen.
