This blog will be dormant for the next seven days.
Cycle touring seems all the rage these days. This time it’s for several days of riding in Japan. Not an obvious cycling destination for some but with billiard table tarmac, mountains galore, courteous drivers and more, it should be. You don’t even need to “bike pack”, the useful Yamato courier service allows you to ride with little more than some change and an inner tube in your back pocket.
The Japan Cup races are on this weekend in Utsunomiya and hopefully there will be a chance to ride most of the 2020 Olympics road course next week too. Back for the 2019 Tour de France route preview.
