About the Event

You know it's time for cycling season once the snow starts to melt in the Alps! Join us in April and register for the Sakura Group if you're interested in seeing Japan's famous cherry blossoms. Or, come later in the spring in May for the Midori Group if you like to be surrounded by lush green scenery.

There are different options for all levels of cyclists. The Sakura Group in April offers distances of 150KM, 100KM, and 80KM, while the Midori Group in May offers 160KM, 120KM, and 80KM. Find the route that best fits you!

IMPORTANT: You may not personally register Japanese-fluent friends/family/colleagues, etc. who were unable to register through Japanese-language only options. Similarly, you should not encourage them to pursue Samurai Sports as an alternate registration option. Samurai Sports is a service meant to increase participation and expand access for those who cannot communicate fluently or comfortably in Japanese.
