Very nice scenery indeed, good for cycling.

Go Eri!

Make the foreground yellow for rice and you could take a similar photo along the Japan Alps, Omachi/Hakuba area. Probably the same in Yuzawa or Myoko. There is great road biking in Japan. One of the most underrated things to do here.

Nice scenery and a nice bike. A Colnago is not cheap!

I ride a Campagnolo groupset stocked Cannondale CAAD9 myself through such rice-paddy mountain sceneries. Pure heaven! In summer you get the cicadas, springs and autumns are pleasantly cool, and winters are sharp and sunny. Almost no car traffic as well (and then I'm sometimes as fast as they are). Yes, there are a lot of advantages to living in Inaka in Japan...

She finished 29th out of 50 odd, four minutes down. Dutch ladies were first, second, third, and sixth.

27.7km in 38:25 for Yonamine. 43km/h average. At that speed, you've got to go full aero like the photo. The suit will be aero tech materials too, not simple lycra.
