12_02_05 Miura Loop (public)
On Sunday, 5 February 2012 I did my longest ride since 1980, for a total of 136 km. On that day James (user "FarEast" on TokyoCycle.com) organised a 140 km group ride around Miura peninsula south of Tokyo. His ride started at 8:00 in Yamashita park, Yokohama, followed the coast south to Yokosuka and on to Misaki on the southern tip of the peninsula, where lunch was planned. The ride continued north-west along the coast via Zushi and Kamakura to Enoshima and from there up the Sakaigawa until Yamato City and back east to Yokohama. It was planned as a "long slow distance" ride, but for a much fitter group of riders than myself. I dropped off near Yokosuka and finished the ride on my own. Instead of heading east from Yamato I headed north to Machida, from where I returned by train.
