If the weather holds and there's no rain on saturday i'm planning on riding out to Yamanaka-ko from Takao station. I intend to take the 20/35 to Otsuki and then the 139/138 down to the lake and doushi michi back.

rough route >> here <<.

This is maybe a little long for beginners but on the easy side for intermediate riders. I'll arrive at Takao station at around 8am, maybe a little earlier. I'd like to keep the pace on the brisk side but not fast and keep stops to a minimum with a stop for food at the lake if we're hungry.

I haven't done this route before so join me at your own peril.

the forecast for points west isn't looking so good. there's a chance the green line will be dry so you might want to think about joining pete's ride if you want to go out tomorrow.
