What you'll do

The tour will be for 4 hours but the exact route will obviously vary depending on ability, road conditions, weather etc. Start time varies depending on weather and if you're coming from Tokyo, we'll generally start at 8.45am so that you can get the 7.15am Wakashio train (only takes 1h20m from Tokyo station) - I'll pick you up from Onjuku station or if you want you can walk the 6 mins through Onjuku to our start point. Basically we set out by going south for 20km discovering some really secluded little bays and ridgeline rides (all safe roads, with as little traffic as possible). These routes I know like the back of my hand. Then, depending on how challenging you want the ride to be, we can head into some small hills (100m elevation max) or can return along a slightly flatter route. I have cycled about 15,000km along these roads over the past few years so I know which roads go somewhere and are interesting and which are dead-ends / non-cyclable / boring or unscenic. Optional lunch at the end if you want as there are some great soba / tempura places nearby. Let me know if you need bikes - I have a variety which can be used.

Richard

Come ride in Onjuku - great day trip from Tokyo, especially during Rugby World Cup! I have lived in this area since 2008 so know all of the roads intimately. Selection of road bikes available to use (50-54cm) but can get larger / smaller frames if required. Ride will be structured to your needs from pootling round the local beaches and taking in the amazing scenery to taking on some of the the Strava KoMs in Chiba - ranging from 50m - 350m vertical. Rides can be as short or as long as you want, although I tend to shudder at anything too far over 150km!

What's included

Equipment
Bikes can be provided if required or bring your own! Lunch and snacks can be provided if required

Where you'll be

Starting at Onjuku (at my bike garage, where you can store your kit - you can use the shower facilities after your ride) We will head south towards Katsuura where there are many secluded bays and a ridgeline cycle if desired (on a road - very safe.) The fish market with highest volume of tuna in Japan beckons - these are caught in coastal waters by longline fishing) and then a few beautiful temples with some hills thrown in if so desired!
