Some of you may have heard, but our dear Martin (forgot his penname here) is leaving Japan mid December and we are throwing a farewell ride. It will be advertised on HFC and various places on the internet, so beware ;)

9:45 meet-up, 10 am sharp departure from Grand Hyatt Roppongi
Alternative meeting spot: 11:15-ish on Arakawa, the blue flood gate
(Iwabuchi Suimon @km mark 20 approx according to the official river path markings)
We can pick you up at the spaceship as well if you let me know in advance

Co-Leaders:

Ben Schwartz (from T-WGN) for the first part (Pongi to the blue gate)
Luka for the rest of the ride (all inquiries - PM me)

Expect about 50-60km from central Tokyo one way, but all flat. Easy, social pace.
Stop by at Enomoto farm for their great gelato and a chat, before returning
along Arakawa again. In case of bad weather, we may be forced to postpone
for the following weekend, but that one is gonna be Martin's last one in Tokyo.
I will make a final call by Saturday afternoon, but so far it looks promising.
All welcome, as long as you've done about 100km ride before.

P.S. Minato Half-marathon is happening on the day, and Hibiya dori and surroundings
will be closed for all traffic apparently. Be patient with Ben as he orients and finds
the best route outta the city in the sea of runners.
