This week in our Challenge we propose pedaling through one of the most stunning places in Japan.
And, in our selection of Routes, don’t miss the ride through Waterfall Glen Park.
BKOOL CHALLENGE – RIDE UP THE TATEYAMA ALPINE ROAD IN JAPAN!
After last weeks challenges in the French Alps, we’re now heading to the other side of the world, welcome to Japan!
The mountain you’re facing is called “Mount Tate”. With an average gradient of 5.41% and a total length of 22km, this won’t be easy! However, the route has some very unique surroundings and views. But make sure you save some energy as you’re going to need it!
To make sure that everyone can participate in this stunning race, we’ve organised various times to participate.
All Bkoolers that start and finish the Challenge, automatically participate in our weekly raffle. Great prices are waiting for you. This time we’ve got a 1-year Premium Subscription to give away!
