The schedule for next year’s “Shikahachi” (Tour de East Japan Kashima to Hachinohe 800km) has been decided.
Main stages will start from Kashima Shrine on Sunday, April 30 and finish at Kabushima Shrine on Saturday, May 6. A pre-stage from Tokyo to Kashima City will be held on Saturday, April 29, the day before the tour.
In addition to the usual seven stages, participants in the pre-stage will be invited to take part in a total of eight stages, making it literally a long ride of over 800 kilometers.
Registration is scheduled to begin on October 1. Those who participate in all stages will receive a free entry fee for the Pre-stage, and we are also planning to offer an early-bird discount for the rest of the year.
It has been twelve years since the disastrous earthquake. With a renewed desire to keep its memories from fading away, we promise to provide a different kind of cycling experience – through a safe and easy route, and along with detailed support and supervision from Okumusashi Bike Tours. It will surely be a bicycle trip to remember for a lifetime.
