Weekend rides 4/5 June

May 22, 2007
"I can see clearly now, the rains have gone." Or so the song goes. At any rate, this is the time of year when you have to bike between the raindrops, soo....

Saturday. A beginners' ride out to Odaiba, starting a little earlier than usual at >>> 10:00 a.m. <<< from the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills. Easy 30km lope out to the bay, mostly flat, back by 1:00.

And the forecast for Sunday is improving hourly, so perhaps an intermediate-level Tama River loop. 55km, easy but fast. Start at the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi Hills at 11:00 a.m. Alternate rendezvous points: KFC in Ebisu @ 11:30, Intersection of Kan-Nana and Komazawa-Dori @ 11:45, Komazawa Park @ noon, bridge at Futako-Tamagawa (Kanazawa side) @ 12:20, Gas Bashi @ 12:45 or 1:00. Long break at Jonan Jima seaside park (across from Haneda) at 1:30. Convenience store lunch.
