Shimanami Kaido Cycling

Image
I always want to go somewhere far away, somewhere I don't know. So I often go cycling on weekends when I'm tired from work. It's my pleasure now.

On March 10th, I boarded a ferry at night and went to Toyo in Shikoku from Osaka. Next early morning, I started alone to go to the Innoshima Bridge in Onomichi along the Shimanami Kaido cycling road. On the day, I made 190km round trip by road bike from Toyo Port ferry terminal. I returned to the ferry terminal at 8:00 p.m. It was a hard work for 13 hours.

The Shimanami Kaido cycling road is the most famous, popular and beautiful cycling road in Japan. I've heard that half of all cyclists on the road are foreigners.
