Takasaki City are organisinig a Bike Hill Climb on May 18 and 19 at Lake
Haruna. You can see the website here at this link:

This is the first year they organise this and already they have over
4,000 people signed up. The website is only in Japanese and they have
asked me if I know of any non-Japanese bikers who would be interested in
participating in the event - there are different categories so all of
the family can participate. So I was wondering if there was a group of
"non-Japanese" triathloners I could approach with the details. Any
pointers you can give me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I'd suggest posting this to the Namban Rengo crew. Quite a few of them do HC as well. I got into several 'closed' funride events by playing the 'International Card' . It's somewhat amusing -- why do these organizations have a special slot for 'international riders' , yet actually registering for the event, procuring lodging or transportation to the event is next to impossible for non-native Japanese speakers. And it's not like they are suffering for domestic registrants anyway - most funride events around ANY onsen area fill up within a few days or even hours.
