This event also aims to contribute to the development of tourism and industry, the promotion of culture, the improvement of the quality of life and reinforcement of the health and physical strength of the citizens especially by capitalizing on Hokkaido's natural resources. It also strives to promote cycling sports in general and to popularize the use of bicycles in Japan.
