cycling training in winter mountain
training on snow with studded tires
The web site "Cycling training on snow" which had been here has moved to Cycling training on snow.
In a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius below zero, wind speed is 50 kilometres per hour, riding at 70 kilometres per hour, the sensory temperature reaches minus 40 degrees Celsius. The visibility falls to 5 metres because of a strong snowfall and you loose all sense of direction in the middle of white. It's not a very friendly environment for cycling. But winter mountains do not cease fascinating us. We're always attracted to hibernal mountains because there, there are something we can't experience in our daily life.
Riding in winter mountains is much more fun than riding in summer mountains.
Many think that cycling in winter mountain is an extrem sport.
But it's not true.
With proper equipement and with proper experience, you can ride in winter mountains as comfortably as cycling in summer mountains.
We do this sport as routine training.
Our most favourite training route is the Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) where the road is paved up to 1280m of altitude.
There, the snow quality is often good and the trafic is light.
It is an ideal training route in winter.
