Good day, bikers,

A pair of rides for Saturday, an Arakawa Loop and a beginners’ jaunt. It’ll be cold, so bundle up.

Saturday - Odaiba Beginners' Ride

Don will take the beginners out for a few brews at the beach at Odaiba, starting at 11:00 a.m. from the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills. 30 kilometres and easy. Back by 2:00 or so.​

Saturday - Arakawa Loop

On the same day, but starting an hour earlier from the same hotel, Sal will take you for a fast, 75-km spin along the Mighty Arakawa.

Start time 10:00 a.m.

Out of central Tokyo past the Imperial Palace, through Ochanomizu, round the back of Ueno, Yanaka-Ginza, across the Sumida-gawa to the Arakawa. Then a solid 16 km downstream to Tokyo Bay before crossing over to Kasai Seaside Park for a picnic. Come back via most of the Odaiba ride route to Roppongi Hills.
