Sakura Biking Challenge [90km]

2016 March 26 (Saturday)

Kasumigaura lake, Ibaraki

Let’s welcome spring in, on a bike! Let’s cycle around Kasumigaura lake, the second largest lake in Japan with cherry blossoms at their best! The road is well maintained and easy to cycle. We will bike the 90km inner circle of the lake but you can challenge yourself to the 140km outer circle (optional). Finish the day in a relaxing onsen. Reasonable fitness and biking experience required to join this trip!

Of all the Hanami outings you have on your schedule, this is a special one that shouldn’t be missed :)
