Google "Okinawa Rock Riders"
I was stationed there for two years awhile ago(USMC). I actually got to meet the guy named spider that made most of the trails. You will love it! If I am not mistaken, the dry season is coming up so you will be set. Watch out for banana spiders though. You will likely have one as big as your hand covering your face at some point. I did. Anyway, hit up that site. It will give you contacts and such. That place it amazing man. If you don't have a road bike, get one. You won't be mtbing during the wet season. That is okay though, the road riding is amazing. As a matter of fact, I am being beaten with the nostalgia stick right now. The best part is "le luge." It is the trail you take immediatly after hiking your bike up to the scenic outlook. You will know what I am talking about. By the way...eat at CoCo's curry house for me. The food there is amazing! You bastard! :)

Hello, I realize this post is a little dated but wanted to get thin info into the forum.
There is an upcoming MTB race on Okinawa, sponsored by Ringyo which has two locations – I haven't been to the Haebaru-cho shop. I have been to Naha location, see website for Naha City location.
Hours: Daily 1000 - 1900
Directions: Okinawa Expressway exit A1 Nishihara JCT. Turn right onto 329. Pass Nitori and Jusco, then a Max Value on the right side just before the light with Ringyo on the left corner across from a Family Mart.

Hope it all works out, may see you on the trail.:thumbsup:
