Eroica Japan 2015 took place this year on 17th May 2015 in Fuji-Kawagichiko. The third edition of Eroica Japan appealed to roughly 180 participants, among which also foreigner cyclists from the US, Italy, Austria, Great Britain, Spain and France.
Classic cycling is steadily becoming popular in Japan, and Eroica Japan 2015 success is definitely the evidence that vintage bicycles have also conquered the Land of the Rising Sun.
The itinerary consisted in three different routes: 25 km (the 2015 new entry), 50 km and 100 km. They led trough breath-taking landscapes at the slopes of the Fuji Mount, in the district of Fuji Kawaguchiko - Machi, with really challenging ups and downs.
Being part of the Eroica 2015 Events, Eroica Japan routes could be ridden only with heroic bicycles, as all other Eroica Races!
Not only cycling. Eroica Japan 2015 was a two-days event with an entertaining program for families and visitors, gathering the true essence of classic cycling: sharing passion with other people, cycling and eating good food!
