Takaaki and I will be doing Kazahari Rindo tomorrow, continuing on to do a figure 8 with Nokogiri Toge, returning to Musashi-Itsukaichi Station. It's a shortish ride, but with plenty of climbing including the legendarily tough Kazahari Rindo. Consider yourself warned! :D

INFO:
Meet Time: 8:45am
Meet Place: Musashi-Itsukaichi Station
Climbing: 2500-2800m
Distance: 103km
Route: HERE

Takaaki and I will be taking the train out from Tokyo. For anyone wanting to take the same train, ours is scheduled to arrive on the Musashi-Itsukaichi platform at 8:34am.

I plan to join. I need to suffer for my last ride in Japan. I will load the route in my GPS in case I'm too slow to wait for at the tops of the climbs. I plan to be on the same train but there are a lot of connections....

Thanks,

Joel

I'm so glad I'm friends with you. Seriously. You're one of the handful of people who make me feel normal.
I'm happy I could be of service!

OK, cheers Joel. Takaaki and I will be coming from Ochanomizu so we'll see you at Musashi-Itsukaichi. Taakaki is riding a white Pinarello Dogma and I have a black Cannondale CAAD10. We'll either be just out the gate, or just out the gate and to the left at the bakery.

Pete,

This looks to be a good ride -- skipping the flats an going straight into the climbs! I regret that I'm out of Japan this weekend. I hope to make another one of your rides soon.

Pete and Takaaki-

Thanks so much for today's ride. What a beautiful (and painful) route. For the record, I got to the restaurant at 6:30 and was not the last of party to arrive so I guess I'm not in such big trouble after all.

I hope to visit and ride with you again someday.

Joel
