    Come on Kelly, why did you photoshop that picture of me pushing a bike up a hill? That can't be me...I thought I always cleaned the steepest of climbs!

    The only time I can get a photo of you is when your walking, any other time and your going to fast for me to get the photo.

    Hopefully the rain goes away so we can hit the trails this weekend.

    Aloha, boys--finally made it up here from Fukuoka and have gotten settled in, living in Miyamae-ku, Kawasaki-shi, about 6km from the Tamagawa, and haven't hit the dirt in four months--any rides coming up on the weekends? I've got a roadster with a rack so I can meet up wherevers.

    I am actually looking for a ride this weekend too. I am thinking about hitting Nikko as the trails there look amazing. Pretty far from Kawasaki.

    I was hiking there in the moors just this past weekend:

    *edit* My Saturdays in Nov are, sadly, crowded with work, but Sundays are free. From Dec on my Saturdays are fine too.

    I'm always up for a ride. If you would like to hit some trails over in the Hinode area let me know. Once I know how many want to ride and what day you would like to ride I will plan a trip. There's a bunch of fun trails out here just waiting to be ridden.

    Mahalo plenty to mattf and kmorast for the intro to the area--we rode for about six hours, linking three or so trails together. Lots of elevation gained and lost; kmorast's a machine on the uphills, roots and all, and mattf's no slouch, either! I had a blast on the descents, and can't wait to head back, though I think my legs are gonna give me hell tomorrow.

    I too have had the pleasure of watching Kmorast get small smaller to late find him waiting for me.

    We plan to ride Sengen Ridge this coming Sunday. It is mostly downhill. We will shuttle to the top of the ride ridge line for about an hour descent down the mountain. This is one of the fun rides that doesn't require any climbing

    For those that went on the Sengen Ridge ride, what did you think?

    It was one of the best rides I have ever had and loved (even though the beginning sucked for me. I had no time to stop and drink at all). The down was great! I am paying for it right now! Thanks for taking a slow guy along!

    I found out why I was so beat on the ascents--I was fighting a wicked stomach bug that really hit after I got home--I couldn't for the life of me figure out the fatigue during the ride. It's hard for me to judge the trail well because I felt like hammered dog poo while riding but it certainly had some great sections. I definitely want to hit it again in better health. One thing--I think a gravity dropper with remote would be a good call.

    Hey,
    Would like to meet up with some of you Tokyo based riders - I've been spending too much time on the skinny tyres this year.

    Finally made it out to Ome last Suday for the first time since early summer and had a great ride there. Trails in good condition!

    Springtime:

    alanw, if your interested in some better trails than Ome drop me a PM. Me and a few friends go out every weekend and are more than willing to bring riders with us. We ride some pretty good trails that I think you will enjoy.

    To Ome from Tokyo by car

    I'm in Tokyo Minato-ku, and it seems from reading this thread that Ome is a good option to reach by car. Would really appreciate if anyone could send me a link or a google maps search term that I could use to find specifically where to park and begin a ride. I'm into single track, anything cross-country. Hope to see folks out there. Thanks.

    Be warned, Alan, kmorast is an absolute monster on the ascents! Good group of guys, for sure. I missed out on Sunday's ride but hope to go next week.

    Paul, when will you be ready for another Hinode ride? If it doesn't rain to much we will be hitting Hinode Sunday. If it rains we plan on riding Baigo then heading to the post office box. This is a similar ride to the one Matt and you went on when you rode your Ti bike.

    Hey Kelly,

    That video is set to private not public. I need to get out with you guys again. I have been working every weekend nearly. I feel like a tarmac monkey.
