The inaugural edition of the Castle to Castle Brevet is just weeks away- two, to be precise. If you are interested in joining Don and me for Japan's first ever off-road brevet, meet us at Tsuruoka Station, Yamagata, for an 8:00 departure on Wednesday, September 24. Alternatively, you can ride the rails with us from Niigata City to Tsuruoka- the train leaves at 4:56 am on the 24th.
The original itinerary had us arriving in Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima, on the 26th. According to the new plan, we will reach that city one day earlier, on the 25th, returning to Niigata the same day.
