When: Sunday, May 8th @ 8:00am
Where: Family Mart, here: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=35.793635,139.68527&num=1&sll=35.691531,139.7612&sspn=0.055976,0.132093&ie=UTF8&ll=35.79325,139.685347&spn=0.007719,0.016512&z=17
Climb: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/401043
Distance: 150-165km estimated

The basic plan is to ride up the Arakawa, out to the climb, up to the Green Line and from there some yet to be determined loop back to Tokyo. Expect minimal traffic and congestion, and long turns between when you actually need to stop and put your foot on the ground.

Depends on how this migraine goes.:eek:uch: Hopefully I'll be able to ride but probably not at a heart thumping pace. sucks, but there you go. It's one reason I haven't been training much recently.

If I wake up bright and bushy tailed, I'll be there for sure! The weathers supposed to be good.

Thank you for the encouragement :)

Are you going up the Arakawa to Route 16, then left across the big bridge, and onwards?

I slept till 9:confused: and started riding by ten...
Actually rode out to the mountains (for once) via tamajosui. Attacked kazahari at a blazing 7-8kph. Just keeping it real here. :D

Beautiful day. Hope the Green Line treated you well!
