So nice around there.

I still have a few days' work to do in Boso, to color it all in. Little way south of your new place.

@adventurous cyclist , it was gorgeous today. Took one water bottle, stuffed my long sleeve jersey into the spare water bottle cage. Only brought it out after the 2nd climb and the shade brought the temps down. How is your ride going. Highly recommend this one if you get out here.

@Half-Fast Mike , its a stunningly beautiful place. Haven't been to too many other places better looking than these parts, maybe Baxter State park and Desert Island in Maine, or the North Cascades in Washington. Not that I see mountains that high here, but the combination of terraced rice plateaus, a few climbs, and the ocean is really a great mix. You could certainly tick off the Isumi, Onjuku, Katsuura tiles in a long weekend. Drove down there last weekend and its pretty. A lot of places seem to be opening up more on the weekends in terms of cafes and coffee shops, and the locals are noticeably more friendly than Tokyo. I'll try to get down to Isumi and post a ride there in the series.

For all the TCCers, if you've got Boso rides, please post them here. It would be great to compile them and I'll watch the thread to edit any of your RWGPS/routes into the top one.

My rides in Boso always start and finish at the Ferry.

#1 130km ride, climbing to mt. Kano (鹿野山). On the way there is a farm/amusement park where I heard they have good ice cream.

#2 About 90km ride, cutting through some inland roads to visit the Oyama Senmaida (Oyama Rice Terraces).

Those roads are my new obsession. 2-lanes, almost no cars, smooth tarmac. I can only think to put my head down and push the pedals as hard as I can. 😅

Thank you @OneForTheRoad , I've added those to the first post. Tried to estimate the climb based on your port of Kanaya start. Let me know if I'm wrong.

I'm a great fan of Boso, especially in the winter. Here are some of my adventures there from recent years.

My favourite access is the Tokyo Wan Ferry to Kanaya. Almost any ride starting or ending at Kanaya is great. You just can't go wrong once you're in that part of Chiba!

Thanks for those. Given me some ideas what to do in the future. I live in Yokohama so it would be a nice cycle down to the ferry, have a break, then start up again, then on the way back, do the same. Now to find a spare day to do it in.
