So this is the new thread that I said that I would post after leaving the other post in Introductions.
I thought I would call it "Riding in Kanto," but then I thought I should start it more broad.
Pucci and The Fixer seemed to have opinions about nice rides in Hakone. With autumn upon us, this sounds like a nice time to see the leaves change color. However, doing 100km through the mountains on my scruffy Hard Rock seems a bit daunting. Any good alternatives for those of us who are gravitationally challenged?
Also, anyone know of any good off-road trails? Naturally, ease of access by train has to be part of the equation.
