Woke up for a great Japanese style breakfast.
It’s cold, windy and there is plenty of snow on the mountains. Looking at the weather forecast, it shows snowfall up north.
- It is not a race
- I am not getting paid to do this
- I do not have the gear to ride in winter conditions
- I am doing this for my own pleasure, and I know I would just be cold and miserable everyday.
Thus, I have decided to abandon the route and return to the North side of Japan.
I also realized riding on average a century a day is pretty hard on the body, so I have reduced the remaining volume to 120-140km per day.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but his is a decision solely to improve my own enjoyment.
Update: distance travelled now approximately 1,585 km
