Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Sekihoku Pass 2

Temperature: minus 12 degrees Celsius at the Sekihoku Pass.

The last training on this route was in June (cf. Sekihoku Pass). Usually we do not use this route for training because the traffic is really heavy. Large-size vehicles pass constantly even in the middle of the night. But there are few days where we have less traffic at the end or the beginning of the year. We take advantage of this. The snow on the road was well compacted. He repeated the interval training at the summit before the descent. Threes were covered with soft rime.
