Shimanami Kaido cycling

  • Outdoor Activities

It is a cycling trail to cross some bridges connecting the island of the Seto Inland Sea,

which is a good experience during the limited time and worth recommending.

Because the lane for exclusive use of the bicycle is built, it is safe to ride a bicycle on the bridge.

In addition, you may leave your rental bicycle at any rental cycle terminal without taking it to the start spot.

*It is the reverse course from Imabari. Refer to Imabari.
