Travis, Aron, Chikako and I are planning on doing Tsukuba this coming Saturday. I'll put the course and the rest of the details up tomorrow, but plan on about a 170km ride with 2200m of climbing. The ride out is nearly all riverside bike path. Most likely we'll finish at Tsuchiura Station on the Joban Line.

If you haven't done Tsukuba before, it's a very nice change of pace with plenty of climbing!

INFO:
Meet Time #1: 6:30am
Meet Place #1: Iriya Station - Kototoi Dori & Route #4 (HERE)

Meet Time #2: 7:00am
Meet Place #2: Edogawa - Chiba side of river off Route #6 (HERE)

Climbing: 2000-2300m
Distance: 165-175km
Route: HERE

I'm a little tempted but need to dig out my train bag and see if it will fit my new bike in it. I would be interested to see the route.
Thanks

Hmm trying to steal people from my ride...oh wait...nobody replied again ;)

I'm interested to see, maybe I'll join (insert weather joke here)

I'll being getting all the info up in a bit, but there'll be a small meet up at Route #4 and Kototoi Dori near Iriya Station with the main meeting point being Route #6 and the Edogawa River. Specific details to follow.

Hi Pete,

Interested as usual. Head to stay in town for house hunting on Sunday.

Best,

Pete - - I wish I could join you and the group, but can't make it tomorrow. Sadly, I've also done no hill climbing since returning from the states, so I need to tune up my legs again.

Have a good ride and I hope to catch you next time!

Tom

Pete, I'm out. I will do my ride, hopefully the next one is a little closer to my area (hint hint)
