For people who don't have to be back by noon, a full day's ride in the Chichibu area.

INFO:
Meet Time: 7:00 am
Meet Place: at the Spaceship (HERE)
Climbing: 2000m?
Distance: ~145km
Route: HERE

After struggling with RidewithGPS for twenty minutes, I found out there's a route by @Yamabushi which is almost the same. I may need some GPS help navigating the Jyomine ridgeline (108-118km).

After Minano (90-95km) there are no options to bail out and no convenience stores until we get to Honjo. Possible lunch: pizza or udon after Sadamine (~78km) or 7-11 before Jyomine (~95km)

Although I'm getting more and more afraid of Shiraishi I'm in, see you in the morning!

Busy with artistic endeavours, so not riding.

Have a good one, and all that.

Great stuff!

That was all done with an app on your phone? Brilliant.

P.S. I found my contact lens it was hiding round the back of my eye.

Until next time.

Great day out yesterday.
Once again, big thanks for the freezing waits at the top of Jomine.
Very much leaning towards a Nichitsu ride next weekend seeing the fabulous pictures by @joewein ....
In that case, I'll equip myself with toe covers + shoe covers, proper gloves, and an extra layer for the tunnel.
See you all soon.

Another top-notch ride with the TCC North crew. Gutted to hear that the pizza place is out of action until January, though! Some obligatory selfies below.
