We are scheduling a club ride down South on Izu Hanto during the Golden Week. Here is the plan:
07.15 Meet at Shinagawa Station, Shinkansen Entrance
07.34 Departure Kodama 635
08.20 Arrival Mishima Station
08.45 Start riding in direction Shimoda along West Izu coast [proposed route]
12.30 Lunch break somewhere, somehow
13.30 Crossing the famous Jaishi Toge
16.00 Arrival Shimoda, Visit Kanaya hot spring :
20.37 Last train leaves Rendaiji (station next to Kanaya) for Shinagawa
23.09 Arrival Shinagawa
Alternative 1 : Return the same day home. Perhaps we can squeeze in a dinner at Sunny Side as well.
Alternative 2 : Have dinner at Sunny Side Cafe at Shimoda Beach, stay the night at James’s house (if OK with James, so this is still open, also depending on feedback)
Some more cycling the next day, to be decided on the spot. Return by train to Tokyo then in the afternoon.
What you would need :
– Bicycle bag, repair stuff, tube, pomp, wind breaker, you know, the usual stuff.
– Definitely lots of CO2 cartridges – Izu is a jinxed place
WHO IS JOINING SO FAR ?
Yes, for sure : michael (1 day), Michael (open)
I think so : David (1 day), James, Ben
If anybody else is interested, please post in the comments section. In case we have the chance to do a two day trip we need to do some preparations :
– Luggage per takyubin to Shimoda
– Grill reservation with Sunny Side
– Shinkansen tickets (anyway it is GW)
Hurry up, there is not much time left.
