Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 29

Temperature: minus 26 degrees Celsius in the KTV (katabatic valley).

A super-cold morning. He heard the sound of frost crack 7-8 times. Trees between 800-1100m of altitude were covered with soft rime. He brought an anti-fog band for the glasses for the first time as he had had problems with frozen glasses during Mt.Tokachidake 28. It was working well. During the interval training at the summit, he met many foreign skiers and snowboarders. He talked with them for a while. One of them knew the cycling very well.
