Today we worked to prepare our lodge and the corse for the 25th annual Mountain Cycling in Norikura road race.

We were helping get water and things ready for the aid stations at Sanbondaki and Kuraigahara Sanso. Also, keeping traffic moving smooth here in Norikura Village. This morning the weather was beautiful and I got to take a few photos up on top of the mountain.

I also met two guys, one from Switzerland and one from France who were riding over Mt. Norikura today. They were traveling form Nagoya over Mt. Norikura and then planning to stop in Takayama and then return to Nagoya. Here is a photo of them with their bikes.
