Summary: Biked 50km (31 miles) from Takayama to the top of Amo Pass, over 2 mountains. Hardest climbs on the trip so far, with many hours on 10% grade.
In summer 2009, Charles Scott and his son Sho (age 8) are attempting to ride connected bikes 2,900 miles (4,700km) from the northern tip of Japan to the southern tip. They will post blogs from their adventure here. See www.japanbikeride.com for details.
