    So, does this mean people are still meeting at 0800 or is the ride actually cancelled.

    This is one of the rides I've been meaning to do for some time. Last year I rode from Nerima to Kamakura several times (to see if I could) & really enjoyed the river course down from Machida to Fujisawa. Looking at the map the Miura Peninsula always looked good, but a bit too much on top of the ride to Fujisawa.

    Been bike bagging more and more via train so figured if I take Fukutoshin line (direct) to China Town I can ride from Yokohama area to Yokosuka and around Miura.

    Would you guys recommend the clockwise direction so that you are on the seaside of the road for most of the trip vs the anti-clockwise loop?

    Agreed - better views - but more importantly - it works better with traffic & the hills are more enjoyable that direction.
    Counter-Clockwise is fine, but just not as nice.

    We are meeting up at 0600 this week.
    I will actually be there vs just relaying info.

    Plan is to roll roughly 30kph.
    I have been doing off road only for most of the year, I suspect this is going to hurt me a little.

    Just got back in country and am wondering if this ride is going on through the winter months and what the meet up time is. Thanks

    This ride still takes place, however I am usually NOT on it. I have been spending my time off road.
    The group cancelled last week simply due to temperature. (we still rode off road!)

    They often switch up the route as well. Sometimes Miura, other times, they may head out to Odawara, and yet other times they take the Ferry from Kurihama over to Chiba.

    I will post up here this week once I know their plans so you can get a hold of them.
