About an hour away from Hiroshima, the city of Onomichi is located at the north end of Shimanami Kaido (also called the Nishiseto Expressway). Many cyclists will visit Onomichi with the intention of riding Shimanami Kaido and Hotel Cycle, which is a part of ONOMICHI U2 collective, provides accommodations for those who are looking to ride it exceptionally well. You can read more about the ONOMICHI U2 collective in an interview with vice president Mr. Takanobu Yoshida in Volume00 of Far Ride Magazine. For now, check out Hotel Cycle. If you are a cyclist, this place is a dream.
Bring your bikes straight into the communal area.
This is what you will find every night: cyclists talking about their rides and doing maintenances on their bikes.
There is a giant shop inside the ONOMICHI U2 with a map of the Shimanami Kaido. Riding it back to back is about 150-kilometers.
And the black and whites.
