    Okay,

    Thursday 6am every week.

    Meet at the corner of the bridge.

    Training Plan #1

    Three laps of the 9.4km course with a sprint each time we hit the tree. Slow down and regroup over the bridge. Should be fun! (Thanks to @theBlob for this plan)

    Start tomorrow. Who's in?

    @Mlac Peek Done.

    Added a map. Let me know if that is the right meeting spot, and also if the giant pink arrow is camp enough for you. Can modify however you want it.

    Cheers.

    I will also attend. Riding from Setagaya along Kannana if anyone else is thinking of coming that way.

    It's raining a bit here and looks like it won't clear up soon. Pulling out this time.

    Was about to leave, but the rain forced me on the indoor trainer instead. I'll try again tomorrow if anyone is up for it.

    This Thursday will be happening. Pace will depend on those who show up. Don't be put off by the talk of serious pace. There is little doubt that I will be dropped off the back if the big engines wind up, just showing up and doing your best is what it's all about!

    Rained out again. Same time next week then.

    I'll be out tomorrow morning for a tempo ride if anyone wants to join me (weather permitting of course) - give us a shout if you're interested.
