Thanks for posting Pete. I usually have Saturdays off, but my older son's sports day is this Sunday, so I need to work on Saturday. I have Monday off though and will likely be able to get out for a ride then - fingers crossed.

I might be able to join, but still hesitating over the route..
Just in case, Pete, what time do you plan to pass by Musashi-Itsukaichi station?

Why do you mean by hesitating over the route? As for timing, I would estimate we'll be passing through there at about 9:45am give or take 10 minutes.
I would prefer to make a loop ride finishing somewhere closer to Tokyo, so if I join, I might ride back to M-I, Okutama or even Otsuki via Matsuhime after climbing Yanagisawa with you.

I will be more sure about joining tomorrow (will let you know in this thread).

Ahh, OK... now I get it. Yeah, this is just a case of wanting to do Yanagisawa, but not wanting to ride a million kilometers.

On a different topic, can we please refrain from discussing the Boso ride here? It's going to cause confusion. Thank you.

Pete,

I will join you, but probably only a half of the course or so:p
Because....I and Alan-san are planing a biking trip on 9th-10th for two days, so I have to save my energy for it to keep up with Alan-san:cool:

Naomi:)

Sergey - that's exactly what Naomi-san and I are thinking of doing.
