Training Report - Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 7
It was minus 10 degrees Celsius at the Mt.Tokachidake Hot Springs where the altitude is 1280m. It was a very warm day for this season. This time, Dr.Yamamoto who rides a cyclocross bike participated in this training for the first time. Cyclocross bikes have no sophisticated studded tures but tires which have few studs. So they have advantages in the climb but disadvantages in the downhill.
Travelled distance: 31km
