I will complete a 220km loop tomorrow (5/8): Tokyo > Musashi Itsukaichi > Kazahari rindo > Matsuhime > Suzugane > 35 > Hashimoto > Tokyo (or reverse via red chili if you want to join Mike)

Steady pace / limited stops (3)

Ride details >>> http://connect.garmin.com/activity/31806430

07:00am: Tamasuidobashi (up river where the gravel path ends)
09:00am:
If anti-clockwise 7/11 (R33 after passing through Itsukaichi)
If clockwise Red Chilli (junction 517 & 518)

Be great to have some company (unless you are mad or a terrible bigot)

Cheers,

Philip

Philip, I was planning on doing solo training at Mikuni tmr, but this ride is too tempting. If you don't mind going clockwise I'll be at Red Chilli at 9am:D I'll do the entire loop and bail out at Kobu tunnel and head home. Alan, why don't you join us?

Thanks for the company yesterday Philip, that was a really nice ride. It was great to finally crack the 1 hour mark on Matsuhime and beat my PB by almost 4 minutes:D Thomas, could you update my Matsuhime Hall of Fame time to 59:07.
