Ok, I'll try and find you guys somewhere along the route!
The turn off to the Kuroyamasantaki climb is easy to miss, although there is a small sign. Probably the best would be to ride in the opposite direction, descending the climb and/or route 61.

We could send to an email or text or post here when we leave the convenience store.

Great fun on the bike yesterday. It was nice to have @Yamabushi back out and also good to have @Musashi13 out for a rare appearance in the Saitama mountains. It's a shame @Mlac Peek couldn't ahve stayed out longer but good to have him along nonetheless. Thanks to @Chikako for waiting for us and saving a table in a very busy Hana cafe. The blast back down the Arakawa was fantastic (although if there had been a tailwind, I feel it would have been even more fantasticer ;) ).

Thanks for the ride everyone. It was great to catch up with @Aron B and @Yamabushi again after such a long time. Sorry I had to bail early. The weather was superb and I would have loved to ride back down the river with you guys. As it was I ploughed into the headwind alone and unfazed and arrived home only a bit late. Looking forward to the next one!
