Mon 18 – Mon 25 May, 2020 | 8 Days 7 Nights
Traditional Japanese, Modern Japanese & Western Style.
We designed the Women’s Cycling Tour so that our riders can all enjoy a few more of the sights and surrounds and it is suited to those who probably don’t want to ride big distances and descend big mountains at crazy speeds. With this in mind, we’ve decided to provide the ladies with their own tour, as we understand it is challenging sometimes to find that balance with mixed groups.
Our first Women’s Cycling Tour in 2018 was a huge success! The ladies had a fantastic time both on and off the bike. The off bike experiences include participation in a traditional green tea ceremony, taiko drumming experience, a guided tour of the Matsumoto Castle and much more.
The Women’s cycling tour will no doubt be a challenge, but what better than to share this amazing cycling experience with a group of friends who are just as passionate about cycling as you are.
Ride with us on this exclusive tour as we delve deep into the vibrant Japan culture and tackle some of the best, yet mostly undiscovered cycling in the world. After gathering in Matsumoto, we will travel deep into the Mountains surrounding this ancient and majestic region. The contrast will amaze, as will the next 7 days of cycling that lay head as we visit hot springs, visit ancient shrines and temples and taste delicious local produce.
With breathtaking scenery, challenging riding and plenty of off-bike experiences to enjoy as well, the stage is set for a uniquely rewarding cycling holiday – one you and your legs will remember for a long time to come.
“The Womens Specific Cycle tour in Japan was my highlight of 2018. I had wanted to do a cycling overseas tour, but had been daunted by all the faster, stronger people. I ride alot but I am not quick, and Iike to ride a hill, but am always last to finish. So it was such a pleasure to ride with the group of ‘like-abled’ women, with the support of Bade and Adam in Japan. No one was left behind, we learnt heaps about climbing and descending and we all felt we achieved alot in our cycling during the time we were away. I love experiencing Japanese culture – the food, the art and music are extraordinary. I felt Bade and Adam really went the extra mile to make sure we got to see Japan on and off the bike. I would go back in a heart beat.”
“We had the best time! The boys looked after us and our safety with the utmost care. We saw some unbelievable sights and shrines throughout the Japanese Alps. Staying in a traditional Japanese hotel at one point enjoying several visits to the onsen baths. We especially loved that we rode around where the local farmers were just out in the rice patty fields, business as usual. Some areas are so uninhabited by cyclists that we drew quite a bit of attention from the locals. The hills were amazing. The tour was jam packed between riding and sightseeing. On one occasion we had the opportunity to have a private group lesson playing the Japanese taiko drums it was such a hoot & such a highlight. I would thoroughly recommend Bade and Adam and their tours, nothing was too much trouble. Take on the challenge ladies you won’t regret it, it will wet your appetite to see more of Japan for sure!”
