Off-Season Training Report - Notsuke Peninsula
Special guest Panman and K participated in this training. It was 16 degrees Celsius at the Notsuke Peninsula. It's amazing that the air is so cool in the middle of August.
The Notsuke Peninsula is a very narrow peninsula situated at the east end of Hokkaido. It's a kind of sand spit. As it's very narrow, the road from the root to the tip of peninsula passes between the seas.
The width of spit is less than 100m here.
Withering oak trees. They are dead because of seawater invasion caused by land subsidence.
We do still warming-up.
We rode up to the tip of the peninsula a little seriously changing the head.
Panman's victory pose.
Fog is thicker and thicker.
Deer (Cervus nippon yesoensis).
We head back for the root of the peninsula.
We rode competitively up to the site where there are withering oak trees. As the fog is really thick, our glasses are useless because of condensation. So we took off the glasses and rode without wearing them.
K arrived first.
Panman arrived soon.
The fog is very thick now. As the landscapes all look like from the root to the tip, we have impression that we are circling the same place like ring wandering. It's a sensation a little frightening.
A fox (Vulpes vulpes schrencki).
