Riding to Onomichi, Part 1

Tottori_Comic_025_BikingBegins

So last week I had an adventure. It all started earlier this year when I decided I needed to do something big for the summer, but going to SE Asia was looking less and less likely.  I started looking around the Chuugoku region of Japan for things to do, and Andrea suggested the ShimaNami Kaido, a 70km bike trail that goes across the Seto Sea from Hiroshima to Ehime.
That sounded fantastic, but I needed to up the ante. I know! Why not bike from Tottori all the way there! It’s only 200 km away! Easy peasy!Tottori_Comic_025_BikeTrailMap

The above map is closer to the actual path I took. But my first day of the trip, I decided to make it a doozy and go from Tottori to Okayama City. Thats around 125 km, but I didn’t take the direct route so it was a little bit longer.

It was exhausting but I made it. The beauty of the mountain areas of Tottori (mainly between Tottori and Chizu) was a sight to behold.

I’ll write more about it over several posts, and I’ll even get some video up.
Until next time, STAY AWESOME!

A few weeks ago was the prime Hanami (flower viewing) season for cherry blossoms. Andrea took some great pictures that you can check out below
