Beer Village stop with nice Yokohama ride. 10AM start.
Beer destination: Kirin Beer Village, northern Yokohama by the bay.
(Plan to return by train, with bike bag). There are two restaurants and a BBQ garden to choose from at this beer factory. Fresh beverages.

Ride:
Two 20m and two 40m hills and the rest flat. Sharp downhill requires brakes in good condition.
We cruise along three sports facilities, eight parks, two creeks, three rivers, waterfronts, temples, suburbia, and a rice field.
Total distance about 60km to the Beer Village.

Bring: helmet, bike bag, bike with good brakes, beer money, an
extra layer of clothes for the restaurant.

Start: In front of the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi, 10:00AM Saturday 26th February.
Finish: there will be chances to catch a train home as early as 1pm. To enjoy the beer, plan for your train around 5, maybe 4 if you are rushing.
Pub/restaurant: put some clothes on over your cycling clothes as we need to be pedestrians there. And we might be at a table outside.

Not for beginners, but you could meet us down there by Bashamichi station and join from there for the final 5km stretch.
