Miura Loop (from Zushi to Zushi)

This is my first post, and subsequently, first TCC ride in quite a while.
The ride itself is a revival of a tried-and-true winter favorite.

Place: Zushi station.
Date: Saturday, Feb 9th.
Time: Meet at 8:45, roll out at 9am.
Pace: Brisk ~ Very fast.



This is essentially a “training ride”, meant to be done at a very high pace.
It is an 80km ride, with several short, punchy climbs – Race to the top of each one, recover, roll hard on the flats, and then race up the next one.

We’ll have one short break in Misaki (46.6km mark), and barring any mechanicals or other incidents, we should be back in Zushi before 12:30pm.

I would actually like to make this a regular ride (once a month). Like I said, it’s a training ride that can be completed in just over 3 hours – Possibly under 3 hours if we skip the Misaki lunch-break (and conditions are favorable)… something to aspire to.

In regards to “inclement weather cancelations”, I’ll post a “GO” or “STAY in bed” notice the night before according to the weather forecast.

Despite the potentially fast pace, we hope to keep the group together as much as possible, so the fun & social aspects of the ride shouldn’t be lacking either.

Hope to see you there!
Travis
