    Man,some names there.
    A real blast from the past.
    Shows you how much this site has changed as well.
    I don't think many go up the Edo anymore.
    I went up today and nearly did an Unga detour but decided not to due to not having cycled much recently.

    Went for a short cherry blossom ride with the gf to ToneUnga yesterday ... still a few days too early.

    But that reminded me of the great 2007 Tour De Pink

    Today I headed out to the trails with a buddy... conditions were just not good for the trail. So... instead of damaging the trail, I opted to hit the beach and abuse my liver!!!

    Down in Kagoshima on holiday. Did a really nice ride to Nishi-Oyama station via the Chiran museum for kamikaze pilots. Some great riding down here, I would love to come back & do the tour of Minami Satsuma one year. https://www.strava.com/activities/926243939

    Afternoon coffee break under a cherry tree. Along the rivers there is only a bit of blossom, but on the Shonandaira climb there is a nice canopy developing.

    The Cherry Blossoms on my hill are starting to come in. Only a few more days and it will be full bloom and I will have tons of cars lined up through the neighborhood to drive under the canopy. When you live at the top of a hill called "Sakura-yama" - I should have known.

    Google searched. I've already pre-booked the truck and angle grinder for next year's 'Fish n'chips, Cider, IPA party'. Sorry I will be a bit busy and can't attend, there's some stuff I have in storage I need to reclaim.

    I cheated on my MTBs... :(
    I took out the skinny tire bike for the first time this year.
    It was just a little over 40km and managed to set 3 PRs (not trying).
    I was riding with 1 mtb buddy and 2 newer riders, so the flats were slow and just spinning.
    BUT - that had me fresh for the little climbing segments in Miura.
    I was quite surprised to see any 'achievements' in strava since I didn't even go after the hills, just kept spinning up them and maintained my flat pace on the climbs.

    Anyhow... I think I have my road fix for the next few months... back to dirt!
