Invitation to Cherry Blossoms Viewing Ride along Hanamigawa River in Chiba City

This time we will cycle from Kemigawahama Beach on Tokyo Bay near Makuhari, Chiba City toward north all the way up to Inba Lake. Between Hanashima bridge and Bentenbashi bridge is an area where the bank of the river is not covered with any artificial materials for about 3km [photo], which is one of the most scenic part of the tour. This area is designated as the sanctuary for birds hence good place for bird watching, and there are cherry trees, among others, along the way. The destination of the tour is “Sakura Furusato Park,” 31km from the beach, where you will see a Dutch-style windmill. We will have lunch there, then turn around to cycle back to where we started to finish a total 62km tour. This cycling event is good for all ages with different cycling experiences - novice as well as experienced cyclists, but those family with small children might want to turn around at Bentenbashi bridge past the sanctuary,13km from the starting point, which will make the tour a total 26km round trip.

Also if you have any question, please ask in our dedicated web board for this ride.
