Hi All,

Am thinking of riding Oodarumi and Crystal Line this coming weekend. Would be great to have some company.

Route: here
Time: I am thinking of taking the 7:18am Ltd Express Azusa 51 from Shinjuku to Enzan (means start in Enzan around 9am)

Let me know if you wanna join,
Norm

Stop teasing. I know, I shouldn't do such a monster ride a week before a race, but I will probably be in.
Even just the ride up to Chrystal line will have one cooked. But you want to go up ootarumi to the top an come back down at the beginning of the ride? What about taking the train further, say to Nirasaki and the ride back toward Enzan with Ootarumi optional at the end?

Nevermind, I saw how you looped this back to Enzan. Having only ridden Chrystal line as a whole from west to east, I'm not sure about the wether all road in the loop are rideable.
If they are, I would still suggest don't ootarumi in the end.

Hi Gunnar,

I think we will figure this out. It's about exploring after all. Like the other trips we have done before. I am waiting for my CX bike so I can ride O-Toge backside with you soon.

You in?

Cheers,
Norm
