    Finished out with a pretty cold day in the hills around Saitama (127.6km - 1,359hm).

    Total of 548.1km and 4,114hm.

    Well done to all the finishers this year; it’s been great following everyone’s stories.

    I’m very lucky - that’s the view from my balcony!

    After an unintentional ‘training’ ride yesterday (100.1km // 776hm), complete with sprint and climbing intervals, legs were less-than-fresh today.

    My mate suggested we get on the gravel bikes and hit a gravel climb in the mountains just outside Tokyo, as a change of pace. Unfortunately, this also involved the first leg of the route being into a block headwind. Legs are even more smashed now (139.5km // 1,231hm), but the climb was great .

    137.1km to go.

    A mere 500k surely not worth doing for you and the other TCR lads and lasses...

    Top is a mate’s shot of me, second is mine of him! How else would anyone possibly tell we rode :0

    Japan is a good place to do the Festive 500 and, I think, totally less of a challenge than back in Blighty. The winter here is cold, but almost always dry.

    Good luck to all those back home battling against less hospitable conditions.

    Been shafted with work over Xmas, so it may be touch and go if I can do it this year.

    123km under the belt on a blowy day just outside Tokyo (just in case I can get the time to do the rest).

    That’s actually exactly it for me. When I had Ultegra for a while, felt less ‘definite’ (sure it’s largely perceived, of course).

    Once the new bike arrives, that’ll be all three on SRAM (1 eTap, 1 Red mechanical, 1 Force 1x). Not sure why, but I like the shifting more than Shinano (haven’t tried Campy - have no desire to).

    Cheers man! Yeah, some have issues with it but I have found eTap to be fantastic.
