Road bicycle routes around Ome, Tokyo

see MTB for MTB routes

This page is still under construction.
Since I purchased a Garmin Edge 705 in Feb 2009, I have stopped manually mapping routes and will instead upload from Garmin after cycling each route.
I now expect to have info for at least 15 routes listed below available by end May 2009.
Additionally, I am updating existing info on an ongoing basis. You can send feedback/comments to me by email.

Times are for a relatively strong hill cyclist - you will need to be in good physical condition to clock similar or better, especially on the longer routes as breaks are minimal.
Note that if you view the route using MapMyRun you can turn on elevation to see the course profile. The initial profile is quite accurate, however after you change the size of the profile window the elevation scale is too low by about 10% - I adjusted the scale on the screen captures in the reports accordingly..

Additionally, the GPS maps start/end at my home rather than Ome station but it's only 1km away.
