The rain keeps coming down and we are looking forward to some better weather. Todays MTB tour was canceled due to rain as the trails were very wet and we hope to help make the trails last for many generations to come.

Changing gears, the annual road event Norikura Century Charity Rides planning and registration are under way. We are running a partner event for the 3rd year now supporting the LIVESTRONG foundation which raises money to support cancer research and treatment. From this year we will also be partnering with the Tyler Foundation here in Japan which is doing great work with kids who are battling cancer.

This year we are also doing a special edition Norikura Century Charity Ride tee shirt which also help us gather more money for the cause. Please email us with your size before Aug. 28th if you would like to buy one. The price is 2500 yen.
