Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Bogakudai 2

Temperature: minus 21 degrees Celsius at Bogakudai

It was a training under beautiful sky and landscape. When he started, the temperature wasn’t so low. But after the start, the temperature went down a lot because of a radiative cooling. It was very cold crossing the path of the katabatic wind. This day, a soft rime was beautiful. The smoke of the Mt.Tokachidake was reflecting the shade of the Mt.Tokachidake itself. He climbed two times. On each climb, he did the interval training at the summit.
