A Solo Journey: Cycling the Length of Japan

Last year I started my first solo Length of Japan cycle tour, but after 10 days and 540 miles I had to fly home unexpectedly. This year, I’m taking up where I left off.

Once again, I will be posting photos of my trip.  In this “Phase II Tour”, I will ride 21 days, rest a few, and cover about 1200 miles from the very north of the main island of Honshu to the south of Kyushu.

If you want to be notified when I make a post, please go to my CYCLING/TRAVEL BLOG, and simply click the button “Sign me up!” under my photo (right panel) and enter your email address (you can set notification parameters, and unsubscribe any time).

N. Honshu:     Aomori to Murakami, 250 miles, 11,000′, 4 cycling days

C. Honshu:    Nagano to Mt Fuji, 180 miles, 20,000′, 4 cycling days
