Tour de Utsukushigahara

A 22km bike ride in the mountains?  No problems, put my name down.  What, a 1,270 metre ascent up the mountain?  What was I thinking?  Japan’s “gekisaka” (severe slope) hill climb event – the Tour de Utsukushigahara.  What a way to celebrate the first anniversary of my arrival in Japan.  I haven’t had time to post all the details yet, but to keep you interested, here’s a link to a photo album.  All you need to know for now is that I survived, but my legs are still sore.
