Hey TCC'ers,

Putting this out there here and a few other groups.
Weather looks chilly, but sunny for a nice day of gravel riding. Gravel bike/tires absolutely necessary for this one.

Time: 9:00 am
Meeting place: Ys Road Tamagawa or for those on the Arakawa side, meet in front of Musashi Itsukaichi station between 10:00 and 10:15. (Rinko or ride, your choice)
Distance: Depends upon meeting point. Ys Road 80km give or take. Around a 4-hour plus ride.
Climbing: Yes - approx 1,300m
Stops: At least one stop for food, but suggest bringing food as well.
Additional Information: This is a real gravel ride with quite a bit of climbing. We will not be red-lining it due to the technical aspect of the ride. But we will WATT of course within reason.

Bring suitable clothing for riding in the mountains. Temperature between 0-6.

This is a scenic and fun ride. Bring your phone/camera lots of photo ops.

If interested reply to this thread and let me know your meeting point choice or any other questions you may have.

NOTE: The map below has a different starting and end point from a previous ride. We will start and end at Ys Road or Musashi Itsukaichi station for those coming from the other side of town.

We had four show up for the ride. Fun time had by all. Beautiful weather and an added bonus climbing up Iriyama, followed by a letdown. still blown out from the typhoon and not passable even on foot. Thanks to a fellow TCC'er Deej who we ran into on the climb up.

way late to the party on this one, but how often are rides planned out this way?
