That's alright. Earlier, the better. And from the looks of @Kangaeroo 's outrageous commute times.... we can presume he'd be ok as well.I'd like to get an early start so we have as much daylight to play with as possible and don't have to worry about using lights too much. So, something like 6 or 6:30 at the start point? (Which would mean an early wake up for you Gok....) It's 20 -25 minutes from there to Tsurukawa station.
Of course, the route change is fine.Karl said:
Sounds goodKarl said:Forecast still says rain on the 21st, but temps up to 20 C. If the forecast remains the same, will cancel a couple days in advance.
Most excellent! I am also hoping another friend will join us, but have yet to confirmKarl said:One more rider may join us. He's from the Sakaigawa Saddles club. Strong rider and does some huge rides.
In my case, I think my average speed is over-inflated and I would much prefer a sedate speed, particularly over such a long distance. I have an almost total inability to read maps, other than to see just enough to get lost (when I was guiding, people in my group started calling me "Wrongway!"), so I would much prefer to stick together if that's not a problem.Karl said:Finally, looking at @Kangaeroo and @Gok avg kph, beginning to worry my pace will be far to slow for you all. Should that be the case, I won't mind if you plow on ahead at any point. If you don't have Maps.me on your phone, I really recommend it. You can add an overlay of the route onto the map and follow the route that way. I like it so much I've put off buying a Garmin Edge Explore. So, if you think you might want to up the pace and go on ahead, if you have the route on your phone, the route should be pretty easy to follow. Most likely the only tricky part would be the first 60 km. The rest pretty much follows cycle paths.
