Tour De Tsukuba 6/20

Hi Pete,

Can you please share some of the details about this? I can't read enough to make sense of it.

Where it will be? And what?



Mt Tsukuba is in Ibaraki ken.
This is a quite famous annual hill climb.
12km with 540m of climbing. (The first climb I think is the hardest (400m). IMHO.
I've never done it and don't intend to do it this time either.
The course looks easy but there is a very steep hairpin at about the halfway point and that is usually where weekend warriors stop to check their times.

Just saw the link on a friends blog.
