Just back from a great weekend in Fukushima.

I highly recommend it as a cycling destination. It was my fourth time to stay in Urabandai (twice for racing, twice for cycling / training). It’s quite cool this time of year (abltitude of around 850 m). There is good camping to be had by the lakes and reasonably priced accommodation. From the lakes there are lots of fantastic roads into the mountains all imaginatively titled such as “Lake line”, “Gold line”, “Sky valley” and of course the Mt. Bandai “skyline”.

Apart from the odd boy racer, cars are quite scarce. Great views to be had too and some interesting volcanic sites. All in all, a great place to visit. Check it out!
