My son wanted to go to Ariake Big Site today for some manga convention and I was going to take my bike and ride at Oi, but due to a head cold I took my dogs instead and had a bit of a jog and walkies.

Still lots of riders there. Mostly obeying the dangerous red light intersections.
I like training there and may go there in April.

Saw quite a few gaijin there today but didn't recognize anybody (including non-gaijin).

Anybody going there much on a Sunday?
Do people ride there on Saturday's too?

Pete - was there this morning for a recovery spin from following Alan and Thomas yesterday. Nice to practice discplined paceline, which I'm still learning a bit.

Would not suggest going on Saturday - wharf/warehouses are open and the heavy trucks make it less fun.

Yes, go there lots and lots, been going there for six years.
I will be meeting a friend there at eight am Sunday but usually things don't start getting fast until nine. Tanaka San (Sysergy) runs a nice group ride starting nine, he's not picky who joins in. I ride a big blue aluminum racer.

Yes, that was me. New S1, spent the morning fine tuning the riding position.
I briefly met Lyle and you are correct. He is very fast! He makes an excellent draft!! Sorry Lyle, I couldn`t do my share of the pulling.
