When you ride a bicycle, art is born.
Interview with Yoshiaki Ito, architect and organizer of the “TOUR DE TSUMARI”(Part2)

The “TOUR DE TSUMARI” is held every year in Niigata Prefecture with a course which covers a maximum distance of 120km. Because it is not a time trial race, the participants can enjoy the scenery and the hospitality of the local people. A notable point is that this event is an artwork itself with the theme of moving. The originator is Yoshiaki Ito, an architect and cyclist. Continuing from the last time, we interviewed him.

Mele of Bicycling Participation Report

Golden Week is the perfect season for riding, as it should be said. A state of emergency has been declared, forcing many events to be canceled, but the Mele of Bicycling, run by the Global Ride office, is an online event that you can still participate in. Participants who complete the event, which is based on the keyword “Feel Hawaii,” will receive a wonderful souvenir from Hawaii. In addition, there are partnerships with stores that offer special services to participating riders as Special Aids. The plan is to have Hawaiian food during the aid stations and ride the whole day in the Hawaiian spirit.
