well, it took me longer than I thought, but I'm finally all setup with a road bike.

Is anyone up for a 75 or 100K ride this Friday on the West Side? Or can anyone recommend a good ride somewhere near Mitaka? I've been exploring the Tamagawa cycling trail, but am looking to get up to the hills if possible. A route that's hard to get lost on would be preferred :)

Hello, Lubos.

Here's a link to another post that discusses how to get to the hills of western Tokyo.

Hope this helps!

Hi Lubos,

As Thomas said, we're planning to ride in the western hills this Friday. I am not sure which route to take myself (lots of good ones), probably, the usual Takao loop - it's about 70 km (or 100 if riding out and back to Tachikawa), with lots of small hills. Feel free to join :)

Let us know if you do.

Gentlemen, thanks for the speedy ride today. I like these short, yet intensive non-stop dashes. Lubos, it was nice meeting you! Sorry, we lost each other at Takao Sta., I was waiting for you in the Super Rapid for Tokyo, hope you had no trouble with your bicycle bag. Nice to have another Cervélo rider on board. :thumb:



I've just started using my HRM. Managed to push my HR up to 185 today. :)

PS: Moved the thread to the "Freeta" section.

PPS: Sergey, good luck next Sunday!

My sentiments exactly, Phil. I'm jealous, but glad you were able to enjoy the fine weather.

It looks like the only time I have free is Sunday, and the forecast is looking fugly. Looks like a morning One-Kan Starbucks run is in the cards.

Thomas and Sergey,

Thanks for an introduction to the western hills. I had a blast, and am already looking forward to next time!

Thomas, yes I did make it on the train OK. Got delayed by a couple things including some more wrestling with my bag. Damn thing! ;-)

See ya next time.
