We have a beautiful day of cycling some of the bridges of the Shimanami Kaido cycle way. This is a cool 70km route crossing six bridges and linking six islands on the Seto Inland Sea. The bridges all have cycle paths, some alongside the carriageway, some hanging underneath and all have special cycle friendly approaches.
We manage 30km, two bridges and a swim, in between dodging sunburn and thunderstorms. We have yet to master riding with an umbrella which is a universally practiced Japanese cycling skill.
