Cool. I'll wait there then. What time?
Thanks @leicaman, I'm not quite at 38 kph with no wind. Any suggestions for a few hours of hills accessible off Arakawa or North/East Tokyo?If the furthest you’ve ridden is 80km and you have to be back by 1pm, I would probably give this one a miss if I were you. From the spaceship to the top of Shiraishi it’s probably around 3 to 3.5 hours , then about 3 back to the spaceship. Plus some quick breaks and I don’t think you would get back in time for your in-laws.
Shiraishi return is probably around 120km. Would be a shame to miss it as it looks like it’ll be a good one.
I really don’t know how fit you are but if you can comfortably hold 38kph with no wind by yourself then you should be ok to get there and back.
I can see already it's gonna be a hammerfest and heart zones outta window...After 15 years of cycling, I had finally discovered “Heart-rate zones”, so I did Zone-2 (ie. Very easy pedaling) all the way up the river. There’s only about a 4km/h difference between going easy and going hard anyway, and I’d rather save my legs for the actual climbs.
