Biking Plan 02 (Tokyo/Oji Arakawa river) 78.2KM

September 23, 2009

The Arakawa river is a great place to run and cycle. You can reach it from many different stations around Tokyo (Kita-senju, Adachiodai, Akabane, Oji and many others…).

Here is another idea of bike training course you can use along this river starting from Oji Station (on the Namboku line or the Keihin Tohoku line).

STEP II: WORK OUT
From: The 18km mark along the river. The first place we covered (Bike Plan 01) was aiming for the East direction until the 0km mark. THIS TIME, we will AIM FOR THE WEST DIRECTION.
To: pretty much as long as you want. This side of the bike course can go on forever and lead you anywhere depending on the path you take. Most of the course goes along the river and avoids any main road with traffic.
Distance: 71km (35.5km both way – go and come back)
