Hi TCC'ers,

The season is upon us. We are reinstating the Sunday morning ride. From this Sunday, April 9th.

Meeting place: Ys Road Tama River.
Time: 6:30 am.
Distance: about 140km
Climbing: 2,500m give or take.

It's early in the season so the we are looking to build up mileage and feel a little pain with the climbs. Not balls to the wall pace. And we stop at various conbinis along the way.

Come join us. Post on the site or send a PM.

Here is the route:

Good on you for reviving this.
I miss the TCC from days gone by.
It was so dynamic and there were rides and riders that were going everywhere.
I would love to know what really happened to this site.
Man,so few people post nowadays that me and Edogawakikkoman are back on here as main posters again,lol!

Well you are free to join us slow or not.
Yeah a rainy day. Nobody out either on our route. But we ended up cutting it short.

Cheers for that.
It was very kind of you.
Seriously though,I am embarrassingly slow.
I'm glad you managed to get out yesterday.
Thanks and take care.

Meeting place: Ys Road Fuchu.
Time: Sunday, April 16th, 6:30 am.

I might join, will confirm tomorrow and pm you my contact info
How long do you think will take, 3h?
With a couple of conbini breaks you should budget for about 5 hours in total. If you're short of time there are a bunch of spots to turn around.

WE are all getting our climbing legs back so I doubt 3 hours, more like 5 or 6. But then again Conrad does go like a bat outta hell right out of the gate. But if there are enough of us, he will have to follow our pace or he will be riding alone. :rolleyes:

Just realized you guys are meeting way up north, not on Futakotamagawa as I expected. I need 30km just to get to fuchu Y´s.
Getting there at 6 30 not gonna happen. I am sorry guys.

How about you hop on a train and get off at the nearest station to Ys Road?

I'd like to join your rides as well but the start time is kind of prohibitive for anyone that doesn't live in the immediate vicinity.

Of course you guys probably want to get back for some reason so it's cool maybe some days a later start might be possible!

The ride went ahead as planned, a good time was had by both of us and of course plenty of suffering on the killer climb. Great views, good road surface and quiet all the way up. I may post a later start time for next week's ride so keep an eye on this thread.

Great ride yesterday.

I'm about 25km out from the meeting point, so leave the house about 5:30. it's early, but if it's the only way for OP and me to have a longer ride and still fulfill family obligations it's a meaningful compromise. Once I'm on the bike and hauling ass to get to the meeting point in time, it barely matters that its early.

Raising hands for a 7AM start?
