    Start riding from Yatsugatake Cycling
    Let’s start pedaling. Ride toward the south away from Yatsugatake Cycling. Views of Yatsugatake range are beautiful. The road is quiet and you can pedal at your own pace.
    After a nice warm up, you start to climb into a forest. As you get closer to Yatsugatake range, the mountain becomes larger in front of you. Soon, you will be in an open area with grass fields on both sides. After this climb, you ride down by the Yatsugatake Farm and Yatsugatake Nature Science Park, which are good places to rest.
    Once you get to Echo Line road, you start to head back toward Tateshina. You may want to stop at an ice cream shop or bakery along the way. After ice cream it is about another 30 minutes cycling back to Yatsugatake Cycling’s Shop.
