Weather permitting, myself and most likely Harry will be going over a few climbs in the West, with many escape points along the way and ending at Takao station.
I'll be riding river paths between the first and second meeting places.
Distance from Takao Station to Takao Station is about 90 km.
Easy turn off to Musashi-Itsukaichi Station after Mount Kariyose.
Pace will be brisk but not massively quick. 25-30 kmph. WATT within reason.
First meeting point: Lawson next to Yanokuchi Station here @ 7:30 am
Second meeting point: Takao Station North Exit @ 9:00 am

天気がよければ、ウエストの山を登りに行きます。
第一集合場所と第二集合場所の間は、私がリードして川のサイクリングロードで走ります。
鷹尾駅から、鷹尾駅までの距離は90kmぐらい。
刈寄山から下りたら、右曲がりして武蔵五日市駅まで簡単に行けます。
ペースはそこそこ早い。25-30 kmph。登りの頂点でみんなをなるべく待つ。
第一集合場所:矢野口駅の近くのLawson ここ @ 7:30 am
第二集合場所:鷹尾駅の北口@ 9:00 am

According to weather reports, drizzle and clouds will clear by 9 am leaving us in glorious sunshine for the entire ride.

Also, since no one has said anything about meeting at the first meeting place, I will be skipping it and just riding the river route straight to Takao.

Might be a bit chilly in the mountains though so better bring a windbreaker or rain cape.

The rain stayed away and the sun came out (briefly) to play on our small expedition.
Some photos, I mean selfies:
On the way to Wada

Wada feeling

To sit, perchance to not be climbing.

4.. 3.. 2.. 1.. wait!..

And the realisation after a decent effort on Wada and another PR on the back side of Odarumi that my knee is kind of okay now.

Mike told me about your ride when I proposed a very similar one to him yesterday.

I was looking at my Strava Fly-By's and realized you guys were the ones who passed me up Odarumi. Looks like we just barely missed each other on Iriyama too. Let's ride together on purpose next time haha.

That's an uncannily close route! Yeah, let's meet up for a ride sometime.

I post up rides on the forum here quite often, join if you like or let me know through a PM.
