Downhill Mountain Biking in Niseko 2014

Tomorrow Grand Hirafu Mountain Bike Park opens for the 2014 summer season of thrills and spills.

Now in it’s 3rd year this year the trail has been dramatically improved this year by the Rhythm Cycles team and eager volunteers.

There have been 10 new bridges built, a variety of new sections dug out and at least 1km of new track cut in.

The result of all the work on the track is a much better flow on the track and an enjoyable ride catering to all levels of mountain biking.

Rhythm Cycles stock an excellent range of downhill bikes for hire. If you have your own bike a single run is 1,000 yen / 3 hours 2,500 yen / 1 day 4,000 yen and season pass is only 20,000 yen.

Find out more about Mountain Biking on the track please check out the Rhythm Cycles site

To celebrate the opening of the downhill track Rhythm Cycles will be holding a Summer BBQ tomorrow afternoon in front of the shop with free food from 4pm until late – BYO drinks.
