Jerome and I rode a 115-120 km loop over Iriyama Pass / Bonbori Rindo. All-in-all a nice ride. The pictures tell the story.
|The route. 117.5 kms total. Iriyama Pass / Bonbori Rindo is close to town.|
so a good option for a half-day ride.
|Blue sky! Familiar territory, but looks quite nice today.|
|Jerome's cockpit. The phone got a few more cracks in the glass today.|
The view in the mirror ... best from other angles.
|At the 7/11 at Tokura, Itsukaichi. The sky crowded out the traffic in my mind.|
|Jerome reaches Iriyama Pass.|
|A really nice place to change a flat tire on a beautiful day.|
Just over Iriyama Pass heading south toward Jimba Kaido.
|The sign reads "hou-an-rin" -- Protected forest for water resources.|
|We take this road back to Jimba Kaido and toward town.|
Lots of water in every stream after the rains of September.
