This 40 kilometer ride is made easier by starting at the 1800 meter level. Ride past the beautiful Yashimagahara marshlands and down into the Shirakabako Lake area. After a short break to enjoy the fresh mountain air we follow the Venus line more before dropping 15 kilometers down a brilliant road to Yatsugatake Cycling`s headquarters. This is ride has some climbing involved but most of it will be taken care of by driving the first 1000 meter 15 kilometer climb to your starting point.
