We started at BCE and rode out past Honmyoji and then started up the Eastern side of Kinpozan. The route is a little steep and even though it was 9am, it was pretty hot and sunny, especially for a straight incline for 30-40 minutes.
Once we got to the half-way point up Kinpozan, we stopped near Touge no Chaya for a drink of water, and then headed on Rt. 101 towards Yoshino. This was a bit steep at first but lots of tree cover and quite roads, so that was nice.
At Yoshino, we kept going on 101 towards the Food Pal area, and after descending hopped on the Yuuka Family Road for the rest of the way back.
At the end of the ride, we stopped at Jolly Pasta for some lunch.
