Chikako and I will be riding this Saturday. We'll cycle up the Arakawa River to the first climb, then climb Iimori-toge to Karibazaka-toge where we'll descend. Next comes Shomaru-toge, Yamabushi-toge, and one additional climb towards Take-dera. All climbs will be wait at the top (WATT). We'll be finishing at Hanno Station, but it's also easy to end in Oume for those that prefer it.

INFO:
Meet Time: 6:30am
Meet Place: Family Mart (HERE)
Climbing: 1700-2100m
Distance: 115-125km
Route: HERE

See you Saturday morning! Also, please note that if we're feeling genki, we may throw in another climb.

Hi Pete,

I will ride out from my place and meet you all at an intersection near Moro station, take a peek at the map below for the exact spot:

Can you give me an estimate of when you will be in that area, this will help me plan my ride-out.

Cheers,
Josh
My best guess would be somewhere in the vicinity of 8:30-8:45am. Do you have my keitai number? If not send me a PM.

Thanks, Pete! Was pretty sure I'd miss this cause I missed the start time. But , <un>luckily the flat tire gave me a chance to catch you. Sorry had to jet off after fixing Steve's 2nd flat ---- had a nice roll into Ome, though, and just made my appt by literally 5min! Another great Greenline Tour and chance to meet some new and old friends again!

Yeah, really enjoyed that!

Thanks Pete, and everyone else.

On the way back through Tokyo, I got stuck in the middle of a massive nationalist demonstration, and surrounded by people waving really big 旭日旗 in my face.

Was pretty funny.

Just got home and am battered. :)

Great stuff

Thanks Pete for organizing and being my tour guide. I enjoyed it despite my initial issues with the weather. All in all I ended up with about 190km. I think I will listen to the smart ones and stop riding home some time soon. At the moment, I can need the long base training.

Enjoy your weekend, everybody,
