Hi, guys!
We have extraordinarily rainy days as in May.
I'm just wondering to ride out after lunch through hills near here.

Okamoto and Seijo areas in Setagaya-ku have many steep slopes, situating on the long hill top from where goes down to Tama River.
Among steep angles we have many Gekizaka (steep slope) including of 22%. They are Ochaya Zaka (お茶屋坂), Fudo Zaka (不動坂) and Byoin-zaka (病院坂). Though they are not so long in distances, they stimulate us cyclists to try. I sometimes ride through them by going down and going up...... Why don't you taste them. Any comments and opinions will be appreciated.:)
