NUTS! Fes 2009

The 2008 NUTS! Fes cycling event-rave-performance art-whack fest was a blast. It seems we may have had a little too much fun the last time, causing the local Inuyama residents to deny us permission for using their camp site for this year's repeat performance. No worries, the pedal monkeys at NUTS found a better place for the 2009 NUTS! Fes, and the party will go on! Grease your bikes and get ready to pedal on October 24th, 25th to the town of Yaotsu in lower Gifu prefecture (map here). You can find more detail about this year's event here. On the menu we'll have the usual mix of cycling, races, battles and silliness. In addition, we'll performances by 5 bands and a slew of DJs. The event will be held at a restaurant/Inn, so no need to bring a tent. Indoor sleeping area will be provided for about 100 people on a first come first serve basis. Just bring a sleeping bag and warm clothing. Tickets for the NUTS! Fes are available here or you can buy them at Circles bike shop in Nagoya City. There will likely be an arranged group ride from Nagoya City to the event location. I'll post again when I have the details. Hope to see you all there!

  1. Hi Papa. Searching the www for cycling possibilities wherever my employer sends me, I´ve stumbled upon your blog. I´ll be coming to Nagoya this Friday the 16th and going back home on the 17th (guess what I do for a living...) I´ll bring my trusted Dahon Speed P8 (Hey, it fits into a suitcase!) along if you have any (jet-lagged) suggestions for Friday night/afternoon. Cheers. Tom. anczy at t minus online dot de
