Notihng fancy and weather dependant, I will ride Takao and then back so if you want to meet at Takao station or something like that leave a reply.

When: Takao station 9am
The ride: Takao (both sides)
The pace: nothing crazy just a beginner/intermediate ride, and I always wait for other riders.

Note, this all hinges on the weather - solid decent weather and it's on - forecast changes every 5 minutes these days...

I might join you. If I'm not at the family Mart next to Takao station by 9am, though, please don't wait up.

Me too -- need to test out some stuff and just enjoy a mid-tempo climb before this weekend. Will prolly do the train thing just to save time.

Update

Gentlemen,

I'm going to wait this one out to see what happens with the weather, I'm seeing rain in the forecast and on the radar.

So if it works out then I might later today.

This turned out to be a nice day! Thanks for joining, Yair, it was a great ride over Otarumi. I continued to Wada and then looped back to the station. The roads were perfect - already had the crews cleaned any debris and only some residual rain water was on the surface. Changing to the CX crankset is much more comfy on the climbs, I'll say that! The Look pedals are kinda nice, too - it seemed I wasn't fighting them as much as the SPD-SL's. We zipped right up there, didn't we?

I had a feeling that you went, glad to hear it was a good ride.

Strangely enough it's been lightly raining in Hino pretty much all day, that's my excuse for the day. ;)
