Cycle (non)stop~Editor’s choice 4

The so-called Renkoji-zaka uphill street is a section of Kawasaki-kaido street. It connects an unnamed intersection near Minami-Tama Station of the JR Nanbu Line in Inagi, Tokyo and the Renkoji-sakaue intersection in Tama, Tokyo. The 2.5-kilometer section with an average incline of about 3.4 percent is an ideal uphill workout for cyclists (at least for me as a weekend rider).
