Cycling in Japan

From one of our Vancouver friends:

I am a Vancouver cycling enthusiast that runs an annual cycling tour to Japan each fall. I am reaching out to you to see if there would be any interest among your club members to join this year’s tour. Japan is a relatively unknown but amazing destination for cycle touring with roads that rival Europe. I consider it a cycling paradise with scenic routes, marvellous cuisine and a unique culture. Please visit my web site to see the photos and read the testimonials of last year’s happy participants, all of whom were from local Vancouver cycling clubs.

If you’ve ever thought about discovering the wonders of Japan by bike, this is an opportunity to do so at a very attractive cost.
 
I can be available to answer any questions and I hope some of you can join me in Japan!
 
Kind regards,
 
Jim
