Tokyo Freewheel are doing a ride past my place tomorrow, so I may meet up with them at Matsudo around 11 and follow them to Koga. Anybody else interested?
This Sunday (23 degrees, cloudy, 40%) we'll tackle the Edogawa and ride up
to Sekiyado Castle http://www.chiba-muse.or.jp/SEKIYADO/English/top.htm
We'll start at 9:00 a.m. from the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills, hit the
Arakawa at maybe 10:00, cross over on route 6 to the Edogawa, where we'll
take a break at around 11:00. This ride is flat, long and fast. It's 70km to
the castle and a little noodle shop, then another 20km to Koga, where we
catch the Shonan-Shinjuku line back to Tokyo, Shinjuku, Ebisu, whatever. You
will need a bike bag for the train and working bike lights, as it will be
dark by the time we get back to town, at around 6:00.
