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)

Busy with artistic endeavours, so not riding.

Have a good one, and all that.

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.
