Well, look forward to the next ride together Philip. It's been along time between drinks, so to speak :bike:
....amazing if you consider the fact that this was his first Kazahari via the rindo! I've seen that yellow giant on his long legs escape on the Oo-toge...he's simply unstoppable...and now - after the Mikuni awakening - he's back!! ??
after that one single climb I was fried for the rest of the day; Lee beat me to the top of every climb after that... Imagawa & Kazahari (from the lake-side). I couldn't keep up on the "flatter" parts of the ride.
>Deej: I didn't clock my time up Kazahari-rindo, so I couldn't tell you!
Interesting feedback, Travis. I still get flashbacks of you hunting me down on Otoge, your cruel, cold eyes bearing down on me. Honestly, it was kinda scary -- like how in a nightmare one tends to run in slow motion while being chased.
OK. Just curious. For what it's worth, it took me 37 minutes from the base (intersection with main road) to the top. Actually, it was 37:21, but I lost 30-45 seconds after having to circle around and then finally stop to manually move my chain to the small ring. I have to get that fixed.
It's interesting for me to note that both Mikuni and Kazahari-rindo take about 37 minutes. And I think they are roughly the same distance, right? Maybe Kazahari is a little longer? While both are hard, I feel that Mikuni is tougher.
Eeh! I always kind of thought my eyes were more "warm & deer-like"
I never really worry about times too much unless they're "on the record" - but 37 minutes sounds about right (It's hard to tell when Thomas is bearing down on you!) But just to keep you happy, I think it was in the 39-40 minute range.
