Sunday 6th July - Sekiyado Castle
Intermediate 150km (Sal)
* Will be cancelled if raining 30 minutes prior to meet time
Start from the Hyatt at >>> 08:45 a.m. <<< We start this ride early because (1) so we can make it to our lunch stop by lunch time, and (2) we have to ride on Route 6 for a few kilometers, and is good to get this out of the way before the traffic thickens.

The ride follows Arakawa for the first bit, then we cross the Arakawa and head for the Edogawa. Short convenience store break when we get there. Then a 40km run up the Edogawa (beautiful) to Sekiyado Castle and break for lunch (and beer). After our break we will U-turn and head South back to Roppongi/Tokyo the reverse route.

We should arrive back around 16:00, give or take 30 min depending on the group riders and size. NOT a beginners' ride. No hills, but far and fast.

NOTE: Please be prepared - tools / spare tire tube and you should know how to change a flat/puncture. Can be done in about 8 minutes, we'll teach you if you don't know how.

Bike lights in case of darkness / safety
