Hi, all

It's this time again. Izu time.
2 days to ride the peninsula north to south and back. No coast roads, plenty of climbing, picturesque valleys and twisty rindos (no hikling). Reasonably fast pace.

Here's The Plan -

Day 1 (14th) - ride out to the north part of Izu (Atami, Mishima or Numazu, or something like this)
Day 2 (15th) - ride to Shimoda (or somewhere next to it) through the middle of the peninsula, beer, stay overnight
Day 3 (16th) - back to the main land - Atami, Odawara, Beer. Train back to Tokyo.

Routes are not ready yet, will post them when (if) they are. Weather looks good so far.

Participants so far:
- Thomas
- Sergey
anyone else interested?
