Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 196

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

A depression was approaching. The wind direction wasn’t very stable. The winds were blowing sometimes from south-east and sometimes from north-west. The road was covered with compacted snow. However, its surface wasn’t very smooth as it hadn’t snow removed the day before. The training was uneventful.
