Hi Pete and Tobias,

I'll join you for the first half of the ride.
Since I hope to return home at around 13:00, I'll either head straight to Chichibu station after the Sadamine descent, or turn around and head back from Shiraishi (and catch a train somewhere if necessary).
See you Saturday morning.

IMHO, probably the best ride with the best timing is to descend to Ogawamachi Station from Sadamine-toge.


I'll be there, just as long as OwenJames isn't ;)

Ouch! But lolz! :D

Beautiful and highly-recommendable course. The TCC community sure owes Pete a lot for all these wonderful outings he has been organizing and leading!

...this road runs along the south side of Lake Kanna mostly in mountain shade (hence slippery depending on the season/weather).
