The Japanese Odyssey is a self-supported bicycle endurance event taking place every year in Japan. Since edition 1 we had in mind something wild. We were dreaming of an event with a high mileage, exploring the wilderness of Japan. This year, starting from the Island of Kyushu, and with 14 imposed control points and mandatory segments we will lead the entrants on mountainous and secluded roads. Be Prepared.
