    One mate and myself are going to Tokigawa tomorrow. We will meet at 8am at Iwabuchi suimon (the blue flood control gate around km mark 20 on Arakawa) for about 70km flat plus 20ish-km up and down the hills in Tokigawa. Kasayama and one back foresty road after that will make this a very scenic, out-in-the-wild experience. I'll take a train back from Ogawa machi as I have to get back home sooner, but riding back also possible if anyone wants to do 200km or so.

    Check your brakes and tyres, and make sure you're self-sufficient in spares and fuel if you're coming, and do let me know you're joining the fun beforehand. Weather looks perfect, if a bit windy on the way out, so we could use more people to rotate at the front.

    Heavy northerly in the morning. It'll be a slog up the river! I'll be getting the train to Hanno and riding back from there.

    Yeah I've seen it. I've had almost the same wind this morning. We can take it easy by going 25kmh or even less, saving ourselves for the climbs.
