GW Ride 3 - Kobu Tunnel

On Monday the forecast was for some rain in the areas we would normally ride to the West and NW of Tokyo.  Jerome could not ride, but was planning another (unofficial) try at the SR600 Fuji route.

So I stayed close to town, and ended up just doing a short Takao/Otarumi Pass/Kobu Tunnel loop.  The first time in several years I have done this climb from the South side.  A light rain started just as I emerged from the North side of the tunnel ... but stopped once I got back on the flat and put a little distance between myself and Itsukaichi.
Lots of new green growth near Uenohara

Golden Week traffic?

More Golden Week Traffic?

Golden Week traffic on the climb to Kobu Tunnel?
