If anyone is up for it I am doing Takao back side ride with some good climbs in-between.



Departure time 5:00 am, but there is a little wiggle room if anyone is really interested. This is rain or shine ride.

Meeting place- Ys road Tamagawa.
The route says 62km, but that is from a different starting point. For me door-to-door is 100km on the mark.

Nice route, ride hard be done before the family is up!.

PM or reply if interested.

Start at 7 and you'll be in the mountains by 9:30. It ain't too bad at 9:30 and once in the mountains you are fine until you drop back to the lowlands. The heat only really kicks in if you ride back home along the Arakawa. With no shade to be found, I dread to think what the temps reach. There is always the train home though, so a 7am start is the intelligent choice ;)
