15 min 48 sec . . .

Running that is :)

Just packed my bike up for a triathlon in Myakojima so I will have to wait until afterwards to meet your challenge. What is the record time??? I presume I get an age group handicap!!!

How about the Ooifuto circuit? I read on your blog you were lapping at 38KPH plus. Wait till you get that Cervello :cool:

Cheers,

Philip

Result 1

Well I did it. decided to punch a lap around the palace at the end of my ride this morning.

Results
Distance: 5:106km
Time: 8:15sec
av sp: 36kph
av hr: 156bpm

Condtions were okay. There was slight NW blowing and I only had to contend with 3 red lights. That was pretty much as hard as I could go for the fitness I have at the moment.

My goal is to break 7:30sec and av over 40kph someday. :bike:


The challenge has been issued. I now call on all riders to better my time.:p :p :p

I started from No 1. I guess it doesn't really matter where you start from. It was a rolling start at 20kph.

Goodluck

OKOKOK You drug it out of me. 20 first run but that was on a busy Sunday about 4 PM and we dawdled a bit. 12 min after dark when the traffic thinned down and I tried harder. There are no lights to contend with on the sidewalk.
Do I get DQ'ed for running it on the sidewalk ? I checked the nice satellite map and was running the right route. THANKS for posting the link BTW very useful.
I think the time to GO would be Midnight but I gotta be on da train before that.

I was running the current Imperial Palace in Tokyo, not the old one in Kokyo. Have not yet been to Kokyo I hear it's pretty wonderful. Kokyo is a beautiful city and one of the old capitols of Japan ? Also is a area of Tokyo ? Where bicycle Paradise is ? One of my very favorite bike shops. Hope to put my bike on a Shiriken and go to Kokyo maybe when the cherries blossom. DOMO TODO

I'm sorry
