Then we tour the park and on to the The Red River Road before we head back via the Tokyo Heliport, Wakasu Park, the Gomi bridge, and into Odaiba for our second break at about 55 km, where we meet up with the beginners ride. Then we ride back to Roppongi for Simon’s BBQ. (Early riders can leave their back pack with change of clothes at 9:30am at Simon’s place.) Total ride from 65 to 75 km.
