Hi, I work on the naval station in yokosuka. I live near Yokohama, in Kamiooka. I would love it if I could ride to work two or three times a week.. but I can't seem to find any routes that would make it possible. Does anyone know of Yokohama to Yokosuka bicycle routes? Another question... I do not have a bike yet. They sell a couple on base but does anyone know of a good shop around Kamiooka area? I had a Specialized Allez before but am kinda leaning towards a hybrid now.

Take the Sasashita-kaiyariya road (r22) to Kanazawa-hakkei. R16 after that. About 14 km total. Grim but perfectly possible. I've ridden that route many times. You can choose whether to take the tunnels or ride up the hill through the housing estate.

If you insist on a bicycle-only route, you won't find one. But if you don't like riding amongst the cars and trucks there are side roads paralleling the main road most of the way - you can pick your way through although it will be much slower.
