Very disappointed to turn up at today's cycle week event today and be told it was cancelled, as happened to me at the 2008 NCW. Reason? No leader!!! NPB - Why do you bother to put in all that work, organizing dozens of events during the week and pulling in several sponsors and then cancel a Saturday afternoon ride unannounced because of no leader? So much for the guff on your website, "With an extremely strong local road racing community even the best riders will be challenged." This event was advertized as being led by Team Niseko members. What kind of extremely strong local road racing community is it that can't find one cyclist to lead a 2 hour fun group ride on a Saturday afternoon? You have a NBW website but there was no announcement about cancelling today's ride. The last post seems to have been two months ago. People do actually look at the website for information - please use it to tell us what's going on! In fact, a whole 6 cyclists turned up and organized their own ride. Two of those had flown from Australia with bikes especially for Niseko Bicycle Week. "In its third year this event is rapidly cementing itself on the domestic and international cycling calender." Really? Sadly, I think we've got a long way to go.
