Alps Azumino Century Ride
Be a part of the Sakura Group or Midori Group (but not both)!
There's no better way to usher in the warmer temperatures and the coming of spring than getting on your bike and going for a spin!
This spring, join us for one of two rides around the Northern Japan Alps! Be a part of the Sakura Group in April to cycle on roads lined with cherry blossoms - a sure sign that spring has sprung. Or, sign up for the Midori Group in May to be surrounded by lush green scenery. This is a hugely popular event among local cyclists and is expected to sell out before registration closes. Don't miss your chance to ride spring-time Nagano!
