On this months ride the "New Tokyo Ride" we shun with the traditional and head on over to one of the newest and most rapidly growing areas of Tokyo, Odaiba. Situated on reclaimed land much of Odaiba has been reserved for venues for the Olympic Games in 2020 and it is undergoing immense reconstruction.
We will gather at the Aoyama United Nations University Farmers Market at 5:30pm on Saturday June 21, and will set off at 6:00pm. The ride will pass through Aoyama Ichome and Roppongi, passing Tokyo Tower before a break at Shiba Park in the shadow of the tower itself. From there the ride will continue through Past Tsukiji, and over Harumi Bridge before reaching one of the many parks in Odaiba.
The pace is slow, the distance not too great, the company is excellent and you're all invited!
As always it is recommended that you ride with both front and rear lights, bring your camera and if possible a radio or other sound system. (We really need more tnes on our rides!)
This month I hope to be sporting a new bicycle horn!
