7th Thursday – Kyoto to Nara

Posted by on Apr 7, 2011 in 2011 04 MILk Japan | Comments Off

Cycling: Team 1: 76km, lots of uphill’s. Team 2: 100KM downhill and mostly flats.

2. Nara Segakuin Toba

Team splits into two so one team can drive and too long to cycle in one day anyway.

Team 1: Early visit to a temple then some killer ridding for team 1 all up hills, through tunnels and more uphills.

Great lunch in Mr Accountants motorcycle café and pick up car early afternoon. Hard day riding especially for the unfit.

Team 2: Great effort of 100km, getting lost, going in circles and arriving in the dark.

Another nice hotspring, dinner and sleep.
