Wouldn't have had the courage to try it without the beginners' ride during golden week. This time, I stretched out the end to make it a century. My first one. If my odometer is to be believed anyway. MapMyRide shorted me two km.

Thanks, guys. Stu, I'll be by for a beer in a bit. I gotta have something to drink while I clean my bike and convert it back to commuter mode. I'm still having trouble, you know, moving. :D

Owen, I'd be up for it. It depends on my schedule. I don't have a regular day off, but if we plan something, I'd definitely do it again. That hill is a constant reminder that I need to get better, and that I know how to get better.

I'd like to figure out a way to add a few kms out in inaka, so that I don't have to circle around Shinjuku like a buzzard at the end :)
