Day 05: Sunshine, rain and sunshine again

Could not sleep well last night because a nice Japanese family checked into the hostel I was staying at 22:30 and kept talking until 1am. They also had a small child stay awake until midnight, and she wasn’t really able to control her volume.

However, Today was an easy flat course, so I took my time and departed at 8am. 

First 60km was cruising next to beaches and country roads. Heaven.

Silent country roads with good tarmac and no traffic from Fukuoka to Kitakyushu. #AcrossJapan2017

Then I got hit by some cold rain for 10km, which resulted in cold wet feet again. In order to stay warm I decided to lift up the pace and went TT mode for a while. 

The sun came back up and I started to feel warm again, back to heaven. Overall a great day on the bike!

Sun, rain, sunshine again. #AcrossJapan2017

During the first 5 days, I rode approximate 670km but everything feels great!


I am currently staying at a friends place and tomorrow is a rest day.  Before the rest day however…

Just getting my recovery on. #AcrossJapan2017

For Sunday, it might become a long day, since Monday there is again rain in the forecast…
