We are in April. Snow cycling season has already ended at the foot of the mountain. But on the mountain, you can still ride on snow. K participated in this training. It was minus 12 degrees Celsius at the Tokachidake Hot Springs (Tokachidake Onsen). The travelled distance was 9km.
He has finished his studies of medicine and began to work as medical doctor in a region where many foreign patients visit in order to make use of his experience as interpreter. It's first training after the beginning of the new work.
Hard rime is beautiful. The road surface temperaure has been high during days. Therefore, the ice under the snow isn't so hard. The traction is high enough thanks to that.
The road surface state isn't bad.
Sprint training at the summit.
Unevenness is often hidden under the fresh snow. So he sometimes looses stable control.
Descending between trees covered with hard rime is really pleasant.
Now he is heading for the Fukiage Hot Springs.
