If any of you would like to come and participate it would be great.....

Plan: From one’s home or friend’s home, to ride safely to group meeting place at Hibiya Park Fountain area. After a personal thank you from local LIVESTRONG leader and a group picture, riders will take part in a parade ride (at a slow pace) in front of the Imperial Palace using the Palace Cycling course. For those who don’t arrive in time, cyclists can join group on the course.

I'm thinking that with the help of a Half-Fast leader, maybe we could do a quick beginner's ride down to Haneda?

Cheers!

Up for this mate!

I have lost family members to the Big C, and would love to come down.

If it is not raining, I will be there.

Cheers for the heads up.

I would, but am already committed to providing first aid support at the Japan-Scotland Highland Games (war cry: "Och aye desu ne") that day - early morning ride to Makuhari, sit around for hours watching middle-aged men hurt themselves playing soccer, then ride back.

You could petition The Don. Or lead a ride yourself.

Just a bump, I'll be there at the meeting place before 10:30AM, the fountain at Hibiya Park.
If I get up early enough, I'll be heading out to do a few laps around the palace before hand, I do not think I'll have time for a ride after the event, I've got work to do at home :( I'd certainly be up for a cup of coffee, but time restraints will limit anything else.

If you do come, please wear yellow!
