Frog Ride at the SGN-Ridge

7weekends in a row that I went for MTB-ing

and this time, it was SGN-Ridge in Okutama

Uphill for about 2hours ( faster than last time I guess!)
Total 36km in 5hours
3000kcal gone.

Anyway, it’s almost November which means
FREEZING COLD!!!!!
especially after you get wet, you know.

but I LOVE Autumn the best.
Mountains start changing their colors to yellow and orange then burning red.

SO beautiful and not hot anymore,
but not too cold.
if you dress right, it’s the most comfortable season for everything.

First time I rode this trail it was May.
It was pretty nice weather and the condition was fine.
Then Mid July, a week before Shimano Bikers Festival.
It was after rain or something and pretty slippery PLUS foggy.
And this time,
Slippery but somehow not that bad.
I really enjoyed the roots section and the rocky section.
I think I could ride better than last time so I was totally satisfied anyways!!!

Season changed the scenery

yellow to red

Frog color pants and jacket and backpack, that’s why I named the ride as ” Frog Ride”

ride on~

FUN!

After ride, we went hot springs to warm up and ease the tired body.

Because it was only about 8 to 10degrees up in the mountain,
we had all the food to warm up the body before started riding down
so I was starving to death after the hot bath.

So, our choice for dinner was,

BURGERRRRRR
at Demode Diner near the Yokota air base.

maybe I was thinking if I could eat the plate too :p

ta da~~!!

John had a huge 450g Cheese Burger w/ Tomato and Pickles
I had Niagara Cheese Burger which has got a crazy amount of melted cheese remind us of the Niagara Waterfall!

Ate like a mosnter :p

9月から引き続き7週目のチャリは
久しぶりのきのこライド。
初キノコは5月、
2回目キノコは7月
で、今回3回目のキノコはまたしても晴天にはならず。
そしてもう11月近いので
さっむい!!!!!!!
ところどころ葉っぱが色づいて、
紅葉を楽しみながらだったけど、
さっむ!!!!!!!!
歯をカチカチ言わせながらって感じでした。

今回登りは寒いからさっさと行きましょう!ってことで
下の駐車場からの車道は2時間で。
ペースがいつもよりはや~い、やば~い

で、案の定、下りに入ってからの登り返しは
グダグダ。

でも、前回よりも全然乗れたし、
最初の根っ子もあんまり気にならず、
途中の変な階段みたいなとこも、
石だらけのところもちゃ~んと乗れたから◎

やっぱり一番ビビるのは、
横っちょが崖の細い道。
あとは別に気にならないんだけど、やっぱりこわ~い
(↑女子っぽい!!!)
ま、そんな感じで終了しました☆

毎度思うことだけど、
やっぱり一緒に行ってくれるみんなに感謝です。
遅いし、下手だし、どう考えても足手まといなのに
ウェルカムしてくれて、
ちゃ~んとションボリしないようにおだててくれるしw

そうそう、いつもは、
途中でこまごまと栄養補給するし、
そんなにお腹が空かないんだけど、
今回は寒くって、
下りに入る前の駐車場でさっさと完食しちゃって
車に戻った頃にはお腹を空かせたクマ状態。
おからドーナツもペロリと平らげ、
帰りに福生でハンバーガー食べて帰りました♪
ハンバーガーってか、肉!って感じで、
バッチリ空腹を満たされました。ゲポッ

        I used to go out for pasta with my buddies I rode with, I think we made that place rich! It all tasted so good! (seemingly better than just a normal day at the restaurant!)
