Short notice, but does anyone fancy a ride in the Oume or Hanno area tomorrow, July 31st?

Was thinking Hanno Station - Raiden - Umenoki - Nokogiri - Okutama - Raiden - Hanno Station (approx 90km, 2500m elevation), but am open to suggestions.

Woke up too late to hit Nokogiri, so went up Iimori Toge instead. A little hot (33C) but nice to do a new climb on a sunny day. On the way down from Kabasaka Toge I saw a warthog (and later came across four deer) and found that the 高麗川源流 is an excellent place to get water.

Recently I've been meeting lots of nice people on my rides - hikers, bikers, cyclists, and car drivers - and today an old man I was talking to at a vending machine bought me a bottle of water, which pleased me no end.

All-in-all, a splendid day.
