Join us on a leisurely ride along the river, quiet roads and kilometers of dedicated cycle paths to Lake Tama. An easy distance anyone can do with a rewardingly scenic destination.

We have a pretty loose timetable and a few places we can pick people up on the way so please do join us!

Yesterday a group of us cycled down to the historic Boro-ichi market in Setagaya, Tokyo. The sheer size and array of strange items for sale was absolutely astounding. We will be leading another ride to Boro-ichi on January 15th so please join us!
