TOPO

This hidden gem of a cycle road, the Shikotsu-ko to Chitose cycling road (or bike path, cycle path, whatever you call it in your country), is one of the most consistently forest-enveloped of any cycling road in Hokkaido. If you've ever cycled on the beautiful separated cycle paths in The Netherlands, you'll think that you've done a spacial warp; this cycle path is entirely separate from the main road, and passes through very pleasant forest.

FREERIDE/SKITOUR: Very subjective, but is a route more-of-a-walk-than-a-ski or the other way around? Some routes are all about the screaming downhill (freeride), some are more about the hunt for a peak or nice forest (ski-tour). Some are in between.

ROUTE TAGS: An eclectic picking of other categories that routes might belong to.
