Project Biwa, the official route

If you are new to this blog, for instance coming here thanks to Hiroki's efforts or maybe this GEMB blog post, welcome!
Please make sure to check the Project Biwa tag to know everything about the project.

Our big ride around lake Biwa will start tomorrow morning (July 30th), probably just after 6am Japan time.
We will post regular updates over the three days, on our Facebook page and on Twitter, so we hope you will follow us closely.

Before we start, I just wanted to share with you the latest version of the route we plan on taking around the lake. We will ride from our flat to Otsu, on the southern tip of the lake, and will then round it clockwise before cycling back home.

The total distance, according to RunningAHEAD, is just over 304 kilometres, and we will also have to deal with a few difficult climbs. Remember that we are using single-speed bikes, and that they are rather heavy (18kg for Vanessa's, 20kg for mine).

Make sure to spread the word, and please donate if you can.
If this is not a good time for you to donate, start saving now for when the book comes out... ;)
