Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Kitami Pass 4

Temperature: minus 12 degrees Celsius at the Kitami Pass

Il was snowing really hard. It passed already one hour after the snow removal. The road was already covered with snow of several centimetres. Winds were really strong above the altitude of 800m. Around the summit, the road was covered with snow of 15 centimetres. But the snow was very light. It wasn’t so difficult to manoeuvre the bike.
