February Century done! (on Strava)

I rode 165 km from Tokyo to Odawara, an old castle town on the historic Old Tokaido road from Tokyo to Osaka, and back.

The plum blossoms are out, which is normal for late January/early February in Tokyo but the weather was unseasonably mild (16-18 deg C at midday). It was still chilly at night though, down to 4 deg C. I took two major roads on the way out and the way back, but it's all good. I have my 360+ km Fleche ride coming up in 8 weeks and this was good training for it.

Odawara is a lovely place, I could see the east coast of Izu peninsula from there and I saw some views of Mt Fuji around sunset.
