As we are hit by a cold front and heavy snow, it is time to think about next summer!

A few years in the making, this event showcases the beach and beautiful mountain passes of Kashiwazaki.

3 courses available from beginner to expert.

Cheers, Andy

「With the support of Kashiwazaki City,
Cool. Thanks for the info. It's a helluva long way, but this looks interesting and relaxed enough that I might consider making the trip. Just can't commit to stuff this far in advance...

It's not as far as Tokyo-Itoigawa!

If you can commit, like Cinderella before her Raleigh Banana turns into a Raleigh Pumpkin, there is 15% off entry fee until midnight Sunday!

For tyres, if you are limited by frame geometry, I'd say go as wide as you can. Slicks are no good. Tyres should be gravel, preferably with side knobs. Disc brakes if possible.

If you are using a road bike, you want to tweak the set up as much as possible.

Hello everyone, I'm looking for someone to share a car/van with on the way back to Tokyo after the event. Please let me know if you are planning to go by car and have space for one more person+bike.

I also tweaked the Big-Kahuna GPX file published on the event page to make it a bit more accurate:
