I've seen a few routes on here but I was wondering if someone had a route from around Meguro area out to Hakone via the coast?

Either that or a ride that may be bastardised a little/a lot.

Thinking of a ride next Saturday.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Your best bet is to jump on the Tokaido line to Chigasaki, Ninomiya or Odawara and start from there. Don't waste your time slogging through busy roads with a million traffic lights. Once you're down in the area, there are loads of good loops and routes. Bear in mind that many of the Hakone passes rise to 1000 m and may be icy, so take the weather into account.
