Downhilliing from 2127 m altitude.

Have us take you up to the Mugikusa Pass then its all downhill from here. Nagano prefecture has many great passses for cyclists, Mugikusa is one of them, the road is long but not extremly steep even for those who chose to climb to the pass at 2137 meters. Controling your speed is easy with our disc brake equiped rental bikes. The 20 kilometer downhill back to Yatsugatake cycling is recommended for riders who have some experience riding bicycles
