|4 Months Cycling Japan
tour started 2009, submitted 29 May 2011
Cycling Japan was my first journey on a bicycle. Outside the big cities, Japan is indeed a great country to cycle on low budget with heaps of free camping opportunities, great and affordable food and no absolutely tourist scam. The helpful and kind Japanese contributed so much to my experience. A few word of Japanese do make a difference.
|Tour of Hokkaido 2009
tour started August 2010, submitted 10 March 2010
On August 25th, Yana & Mark Ivey, Brooks Sizemore and I did a Bicycle Tour of Hokkaido (the northern-most big Island of Japan). The ride totaled 1532.3km of riding and 15,300m of climb over 18 riding days, during which we got 2 flat tires, neither of which could be attributed to the condition of Japan's roads. (All tracks were recorded by my Garmin 76CSx, and you download all the tracks in a zipped package)
|Tour of Hokkaido
tour started August 2009, submitted 29 September 2009
4 of us toured Hokkaido, starting from Chitose, over to the North East Section and return. We visited several National Parks along the way, and many hot springs. But the main attraction was the Japanese people and their friendliness.
