Mishima to Kanami Mountain bike route.

20 02 2012

The aim of this trip was to try and find some decent mountain biking routes in the area.

The course did not turn out to be too technical. It mostly ran along paved and unpaved farming tracks.
There route wound through steep midland farming areas, bamboo and cedar forests and some native forest (a rare sight in Japan). There were also some excellent views of Mt Fuji, Suruga Bay, the Minami Alps and the Izu Peninsular.
It was a constant climb and glide between steep saddles and draws along the route making it an exhausting ride for such a short trip.
The route could be completed between 2 and 3 hours depending on your fitness level (18.9km). I spent quite a bit of time exploring other roads and paths that sometimes led to dead ends.

There were not too many people on the track but keep an eye out for them.
The route starts about 11km from Numazu Station
