All climbs will be wait at the top (WATT).

Not to cast a shadow on this ride or hijack riders from Pete, but the forecast looks grim for Sunday so I'm all geared up for a ride tomorrow.

If the forecast still looks grim before bed then I'm going to ride tomorrow, I'll do Takao, tsuru pass, and then tomin no mori (in that order). Going by Takao around 7:30ish and Fujino around 8:30. If anyone is interested then ill send the route.

If the forecast looks better then I'll roll the dice and wait for Sunday.

Sorry Pete, I just really want to get in long ride.

Mate, if the weather is good and you can ride tomorrow, do it! Don't take a chance on the weather being good or not on Sunday. If I could ride tomorrow, I most certainly would!

I'm out. Weather too unpredictable, so decided to go and support my いちご オレ mates at their CX race tomorrow.

Pete, got those dura ace pedals fitted so we can swap bikes etc. :D
