A group of ALTs based in the Hitoyoshi-Kuma Area have organised a special cycling event for ALTs and CIRs! Please find a message below from Charles, one of the JET ALTs organising the event:
Some of the Hitoyoshi-Kuma ALTs have collaborated with the Kuma Cycle Center to bring you a special cycling event for ALTs (CIRs welcome too!). It will be held on Saturday June 29th (June 30th in case of rain) and will run from Asagiri Station to Yunomae and back again. The cost will be ￥3000 (includes lunch, bike rental and tour guide). Registration will begin at 8:30am before a safety briefing at 9am.
I recommend driving and parking at Asagiri Station, but it is possible to get a train from Kumamoto at 6am (changing in Yatsushiro and Hitoyoshi)
