Bike Selection

Go with your most aero road bike since there’s so much tarmac at the start. But on a one-lap race, swap to a gravel bike before starting the Temple KOM, then stay on your gravel bike through the lap arch/finish. (It’s not worth the time lost to swap back.)

Route Description

This route breaks up nicely into 3 sections of roughly equal length: the flat start, the Temple KOM, and the descent from the KOM tree back to the start line.

We begin with a 5.5km flat warmup through the farmlands to the Country Sprint arch. Then the road begins to climb as you go through Village Onsen and the Fishing Village before turning left onto the dirt path of the Temple KOM climb.

The Temple KOM ends at the giant mystical tree, then we descend through the marketplace/Castle area to the start banner to do it all over again.

This one is ok, I switched to the mountain bike once. The end is a short tarmac road almost all downhill to the end. The climbing on the gravel is steady without any serious degrees though no distance or gradient shown in game as of yet.
This one I could ride again as the nice graphics are more enjoyable uphill (slower speed). A bit too short for a workout though if you don’t fancy 2 laps without bike changes.
