In the cold weather it can be hard to motivate yourself so we’ve created a few winter challenges that you can complete from anywhere in the world (as long as it’s cold enough!).
Checkout the Winter Challenges on Sporra and get out there and earn points and medals!
The recently released Sporra Travel (https://travel.sporra.net) now also supports Strava. Log into your Strava account and you can find hotels located along previous activities that you completed in Japan.
Strava Routes is not currently supported due to an error in the Strava API that we are waiting to be fixed.
The Sporra Travel site has been released. Currently, it lets the user find hotels along courses uploaded in RideWithGPS using Rakuten Travel. Consequently, it only works in Japan but it will be expanded over time.
How to use:
The Irohazaka hill in Nikko, Tochigi, Japan is one of the most famous in the country.
The descent during the fall foliage season is perpetually crowed as busses take the hairpin corners very slowly.
Bicycles can take the inside of the hairpins and pass cards on each one, as I did on this descent.
Take a look!
Riding through Norther Kanto, lies one of the highest passes in Japan。The descent starts at at almost 1900m and descents into Senjo-ga-hara in the Nikko area.

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!
