Option 1 . Stay the night free camping in the river side park and most likely face a night of heavy rain
Option 2 . Find the nearest 7/11 quickly stock up on food, water and snacks and hit R 49 for a 3 hour ride back to Niigata City
I decided as it was already 2.30pm to get to the nearest 7/11 , soon I had found one and bought the following supplies to get me back into the city. 2 ltrs water , hamburger, pack of fried chicken cutlet sandwiches , 2 x snickers bars , I consumed everything but one snickers bar and refilled the 2 ltr drink bladder plus I still had more Soy Joy bars left over as well and fast the busy R49 back to Niigata City. One great thing about R49 is that is mostly downhill but apart from that I was faced with a tunnel that was 2666 mtrs long, not my ideal road to take home but as soon as I could I got off R49 onto some more quiet back roads and crossing the Agano river back towards the city dusk was already upon me and with my lights on I entered Niigata city to finish my tour. The last day was one of the toughest days I have ever had on any bicycle , but I pleased to cover 153 km in 11 hours on a loaded single speed and had a fantastic adventure over the past 5 days.
