I'm in, although I'll be either riding back to Ogawamachi or home on this route


I'll stick with you until the start of the Jyomine climb.

Went for Look Keo 2 Max pedals with Shimano R170 shoes. Had to throw out my MTB shoes as they smelled worse than a cavewoman's thigh-gap.

Nice one. The stiff bearings should add a bit of resistance training to your rides ;)

See you all in the morning. 50kmph average speed, strict drafting, 200+ BPM heart rate, water bottles filled with Red Bull, overtaking motorbikes, etc.

Yeah, might ride back too, although maybe heading up past Honjo and onto the Tonegawa (if there is a tail wind; can't be arsed to do 75km into a headwind like a prick). If I go that way, anyone is free to join me if they want some scorching river side action (not like that)

@Robert

There is a Family Mart on Route 269 just before the route gets to 407. That is really near Kita-Sakado. We will be there between 8.30am and 9am probably. I think that is right(?)
