Respect trails and local communities

The trails that run on the tour include landowners, managers, governments, forestry workers, hunters, etc.

We are running with the support of the local community.

We have built it up to now with a volunteer organization called "Minami Alps Mountain Bike Lovers Association".

I hope you will take good care of the trail network. Please observe the following rules when driving. 

At the time of applying for the tour, we will consider that you have agreed to strictly adhere to the following.

Driving rules

・ Please do not drive other than the tour. We are aiming for a public trail in the future, but it is not easy to allow it in the current Japanese society. If you would like to drive repeatedly on your own, please join the "Minami-Alps Mountain Bike Lovers Association". https://www.minamialpsmtb.com/join

・ Basically, please do not slide the tires or lock the rear wheels. If you slide the tires, rainwater will flow there, leading to soil erosion.

-A trail designed to be enjoyed at about half the speed of full throttle. If you speed up too much, you will be seriously damaged if you fall. The guide will control the speed at the beginning to reduce the risk of accidents.

-Do not destroy or modify the trail. There are some sections where the shoulders are soft, so be careful not to step on it.

・ There is an owner in the forest. Please do not collect forest products or damage trees.

・ Please do not publish GPS information (including location information of mobile phones and cameras) on the web. This is to control the entry of mountains other than those involved.

・ Please say hello to those who met in the mountains.

Health requirement

  • Please be in good physical condition on the day of the event.

  • Please do not participate if you are tired due to lack of sleep.

  • Please be sure to let us know in advance if you feel unwell or injured.

  • If you have any illness or allergies, please be sure to let us know in advance.

  • You cannot participate in the tour with alcohol or drinking alcohol.  

About the weather

It's an outdoor sport and it's a play with a field, so it depends on the weather. If it rains or the trail is wet, we will keep an eye on the tour for trail maintenance and safety. This is for the sustainable use of the trail.

  • Basically, we will contact you by 20:00 the day before only in case of cancellation.

  • Even if the weather forecast is off, if there is damage to the trail, it will be canceled. In that case, we will not be able to answer any invoices for transportation expenses. * There is no cancellation fee for cancellation due to weather
