Night Pedal Cruising Valentines Bash and Onsen Ride 2014

Byron Kidd
Wash away your bad Valentines Day experiences at the Night Pedal Cruising Onsen Ride on February 15th!

Didn't receive any chocolates? No flowers? Your lover rejected your advances? Did you get turned down or spend Valentines Day alone? Were you forced to buy, or worse make, chocolates for everyone in your office? Well its time to wash away those Valentines Day blues on the Night Pedal Cruising Onsen Ride!

Riders will gather under the Night Pedal Cruising banner at the Aoyama United Nations University Farmers Market at 5:30pm on Saturday February 15, and will set off at 6:00pm.  Unlike most Night Pedal Cruising rides instead of cruising around the centre of Tokyo this ride heads west away from the city centre to the onsen "Utsukushi no Yu" in Takaido.

Along the way we'll cycle along Suidō dōro which features one of Tokyo's finest bicycle lanes, a rare opportunity indeed to cycle in a bike lane in Tokyo! Don't miss it!

At the end of the cold winters ride you can relax in the warm waters of Utsukushi no Yu which features attractive outdoor rotenburo baths, a range of indoor tubs and a 'relaxation room' fitted out with rows of reclining massage chairs. I believe you're also free to use the 25m swimming pool.

There is a small restaurant on site which serves good cheap food and drink. Living local I know some restaurants in the area, but I expect few could handle the vast number of Night Pedal Cruising members!

To bathe at the onsen or not is completely up to you. Utsukushi no Yu charges ¥1,200 for use of the facilities and you can rent face towels, and bath towels for ¥50 and ¥100 respectively.

As always dress warm as Night Pedal Cruising rides travel at a leisurely pace, and remember to bring lights, cameras (no nude pictures in the onsen please!) bells, whistles, and any kind of mobile sound system you may have.

As many of you know I'm suffering from a back injury, but thanks to strong painkillers and a daily stretching routine I'm on the mend and this will be my comeback ride after two weeks of no cycling. If I haven't fully recovered I will still meet the ride as it cruises past my neighbourhood and hang out at the onsen. Look forward to seeing everyone there!
