High Speed version:
We’ve added the Japanese castles (all 100 on the list maintained by the government). Try and ride to as many of them as you can!
The government of Japan maintains a lit of 100 rice terraces (on the side of mountains so they form a nice shelf like appearance) and we’ve included them as bronze goals with 5 points!
We’ve added a major list of Japanese mountain passes to the site as single challenges each Bronze and worth 5 points. Try and hit as many of them as you can!
note: Some of the passes may not be on roads, drop me a line if you find one that is unreachable by road and we’ll fix it
While riding around Ehime Prefecture, Japan I came across this most specactular of passes. At only 290 meteres, it isn’t a particularly high pass but the view of the ocean on the way down makes the descent quite unique.
