Can't wait!
I used to do this ride a few times a month with Mike (Sly), who has since left Japan. And I haven't been there in over 2 years.
It'll be quite the nostalgic return. I look forward to hopefully seeing a few old (and new) faces.

You would ride in my backyard the weekend I will be riding around Mt Fuji. Damn.
Well - we have all winter to do it again.

Start: 09:00 AM Zushi Station (East Exit)
End: around noon Zushi Station
Pace: moderate (~80km, 500m of altitude)
Course: Zushi to Zushi clock-wise

In so far:

I'm planning to ride out from the Ikuta/Tamagawa area. If anyone wants to tag along, let me know.


@thomas, would it be OK to join you in the Ikuta/Tamagawa area and ride down, too?

Then please count me in!
Is there a fancier way? I'm very happy either way, and doubly so if I'm able to ride with you!

What's the plan for Sunday morning?
Where should we meet and what time?
@jonmanjiro, I can't maintain a 29.2 kp/h av, either and would be happy to stick around at a more sedate pace if you want to come, but will do my best to hang on otherwise.

@Kangaeroo I think I could average around 25-26 kp/h and 29-30 kp/h for stretches, but I didn't want to be the guy slowing the group down. If you're happy riding at that somewhat more sedate pace, count me in!

I was thinking of meeting up at Eda Station along R246 at 06:30. We could discuss details on Line and then post an update tomorrow. :)

Had a really good time yesterday!
It was good riding with @thomas again, as well as @Kangaeroo (Ryan) and @jonmanjiro (Jon).
We all held a fairly decent "medium" pace, and were back in Zushi just around 1pm. I almost never ride on from there, usually preferring the luxury of a train seat to a few extra kilometers, but when Thomas asked me, "Don't you want to ride with us to Yokohama?", my first thought was "Yes! Yes I actually DO want to ride a bit more on this gorgeous day!"
Jon showed us some backroads & cycling paths to get us to Totsuka, where we said goodbye to him. Thomas, Ryan and I then headed along Rte.1 to Yokohama, where I caught the train. Thomas & Ryan then had another 20~30km ahead of them.
Very enjoyable day. Thanks guys!

Awesome report, @WhiteGiant, tremendous day and fantastic guiding and route! Brilliant pics and thanks for capturing me every time I took a deep breath! Thanks to @thomas and @jonmanjiro, too, for making a wonderful ride. Very grateful to @thomas for organizing the ride, getting me there and back, and to @jonmanjiro for putting in an absolutely brilliant ride on your foldup! What a beast!
Apologies that my photos are of a very ordinary quality, despite the excellent subject matter. It was all I could do to keep up on the day. Cheers!

@jonmanjiro, you were a beast! I bow my head in respect for your great ride (and I was dying to stir you up, coming from Wollongong and all, but there was no room to do so because of the admiration!)

Great report & pics of a top ride! Thanks for making it a blast @thomas @WhiteGiant @Kangaeroo !!!!!

I was a bit reluctant about joining with the small wheels (bringing a knife to a gun fight etc. etc.) and I did a expect a bit more ribbing, especially from the Aussie contingent. Thanks for taking it easy on me!! "moderate (medium?) pace" is kinda fast tho 😅
Next time, the Miura resident dickhead might show up. Then you will just have to deal with the onslaught... :D
I was out chasing waterfalls while you kids played in my backyard. I also know where all the good eats are too! :D

Ahahahaha :flip::flip::flip:

When Travis told that joke about Canberra and Brisbane (?), I was thinking to myself "surely Canberra isn't all that bad... probably better than Wollongong"
