As the days get shorter, so do the rides. Note the start time, 7.30am.

INFO:
Meet Time: 7:30am
Meet Place: at the Spaceship (HERE)
Climbing: ~1200-1500m
Distance: ~100km
Route: HERE

I'm a bit worried about snow on the Green Line, but with the ample sunshine it should be okay -- let's just be careful. Possible udon lunch after Sadamine (~78km).

We may have a special guest appearance by @Blue Ridge.

I'm not sure. I think the bed might win out over the bike tomorrow morning, to be honest: the past four days at work have felt like an eternity.

If I'm not at the spaceship, head on!

It pained me to miss the ride but as predicted, the rain did arrive.

@Musashi13 riding in the rain with no rainwear isn't hard, it's stupid. I may or may not be heading to a well known cycling clothes shop as I type this, to remedy the "no rainwear" situation.

Arrived late (I thought it was an 8 am rendezvous) then met Aron briefly on his way home nursing a bald tyre. Rain started when I reached Tokigawa and was quite pleasant for a while, but got cold as I rode higher so I turned back before the summit and caught the 12:40 from Ogawa. Packing the bike now for tonight's flight home to Dubai, where the cycling season is in full swing.

Looking forward to another TCC ride on my next visit - perhaps in the spring.
