It was a long winter this year, which has delayed the start to our cycling season. There is still plenty of snow on the high mountains of Daisetsuzan National Park, but the roads are all snow free and have been cleaned of the winter grit. With the recent sunny days the landscape is starting to become green again and the local farmers in the valley are busy planting their crops. On sunny days the midday temperature is rising to around 20 degrees.
Above are some photos we have taken while out riding in the area of the Playground of the Gods.
Looking forward to the season ahead.
