Spider Loop (for want of a better name - also known as "the same old place we always ride", or simply "The Fence") is a favorite place for advanced mountain bikers to hone their technical skills; in fact some will tell you there's no place else on Okinawa to ride. It consists of a series of short trails, each with its own character. The Loop is mostly singletrack, with surfaces ranging from dirt to clay to gravel to (ugh) pavement. There are gnarly technical climbs and bugs-to-fill-in-the-gaps-in-your-smiling-teeth downhill plunges. If you ride at all aggressively, then suspension is a must.
How to get there:
Turn right (north) onto Route 58 out of Kadena AB Gate 4. Follow Rte. 58 approximately 7 km north until you see a restaurant on the left with 3 large pigs and a steer out front. You can't miss this. Go .9 km past the pigs and there will be a traffic light. Turn right and go to the end of the road. Park here.
