Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 190

Temperature: minus 14 degrees Celsius at the Tokachidake Hot Springs (Tokachidake Onsen).

The road was covered with uneven ice or partially compacted snow beneath the fresh snow. It required a lot of power to climb. The snowfall got heavier during the interval training at the summit. He needed to use the inverted Y descent technic as the road was covered with muddy snow. When it ceased to snow, he climbed again to do the interval training at 1200m of altitude.
