憧れのしまなみ海道(re:日本一周#11)

11日目の今日は特別な日だった

サイクリストにとっての憧れ「しまなみ海道」を始めて走る日だからだ

しまなみ海道とは広島県尾道市と愛媛県今治市を繋ぐ、全長70キロ強の道路で、瀬戸内海に浮かぶ島々を繋ぐ橋をいくつも渡りながら、瀬戸内の絶景の中を走れる道路だ。

そんな憧れの地を走るウキウキの今日は天気も快晴。思えば旅に出てから11日目。初日のゲリラを抜いて一回も雨に降られていない。というか全部快晴だ。晴れ男すぎる。

今日寝た道の駅笠岡ではホモのおっさんに添い寝されるという恐怖の事件が起きたが、ここでは書けないから詳しく聞きたい人は是非直接聞いてほしい。強烈すぎる話だから。

そんな経験をした日の朝でも、ウキウキするほどにはしまなみ海道は楽しみだった。

そんな9日目の道のり

まずは道の駅笠岡を出発してすぐに広島県福山市に入る

広島に入ってからは30キロほどでしまなみ海道の玄関口 尾道市へ

尾道から最初の島の向島までは2分だけフェリーに乗る。

渡し船的なサムシング

冒険の始まり感がすごいフェリーに乗って向島に到着すれば、いよいよしまなみ海道の旅が始まる。

向島は前半、「ここほんとに島?」って思えるくらいの住宅街なんだけど、後半にしまなみ海道らしい瀬戸内海の風景が姿を現した

穏やかな海と島々を眺めながら次の島である因島を目指す

海沿いを走ると、次の因島へつながる因島大橋が見えてきた

しまなみ海道は大体一つの島を、10キロから15キロほど走ることで次の島に行ける。

まさにプチRPGを味わえた。

ドラクエ気分で因島大橋を渡って

次の島 因島へ

因島は海沿いじゃなくて島の内陸を突っ切るルートだったから坂道は多かったけど、みかん畑とか、瀬戸内ならではの風景を楽しみながら、次の生口島へ繋がる生口橋へ

生口橋はめちゃくちゃ綺麗だった

なんならしまなみ海道で一番素敵な風景が広がっていた

斜面に広がる柑橘系の畑

青い海と緑が映える山々

人々の生活は島に息づいていた

ふるさとの風景がそこにあった

リアルぼくのなつやすみがそこにあった

そんな美しい生口橋を渡ると次の島の生口島へ

生口島は海沿いをひたすら走るロードだったんだけど、しまなみ海道の中では一番走りやすくて綺麗な島だった

南国感あふれる潮風漂う道をひたすら走る

生口サンセットビーチとか、とにかく夏のキラキラした風景と水着ギャルを拝みながら、気づけば次の橋が見えてきた

次の大三島へ繋がる多々羅大橋は渡っていて一番気持ちの良い橋だった

海の上を走ってるような感覚の気持ち良さ

潮風とトンビの鳴き声とどこか遠くで鳴る汽笛の音が、どこか懐かしい雰囲気を出していた

そんな多々羅大橋を渡ると、こんなもの発見

サイクリストの聖地碑があった

みんなパシャパシャしてたから俺もパシャパシャ。聖地巡礼してたんだと今更ながら実感

しかしまぁ、聖地になるのも納得の走りやすさと美しさがしまなみ海道にはあった

そしてテンションが上がって

思わずタイマーで自撮り

普段あんまりこんなことしないけど、したくなるくらいには綺麗だったから仕方ない

そしてここの道の駅でお昼ご飯を食べて

大三島を走る

大三島はあっという間に次の橋に辿り着いて

大三島橋を渡って伯方島へ

伯方の塩♪で有名な伯方島

まぁ景色も綺麗だった

しまなみ海道のイメージは広島側はビーチとかが多く、明るくキラキラしたイメージ

愛媛側は、少しニッチで、走れば走るほど色んな魅力に気づける感じがする

今まで合わせて4回走ってるヨコイシが言うんだから多分間違いない

伯方島も小さい島で、次の橋である伯方・大島大橋はすぐに見えてきた

伯方・大島大橋を渡ると、最後の島である大島へ。大島は一番大きい島だ。

程よいアップダウンと海沿いの気持ちよさを味わえる素敵な島だった

そして最後の橋、来島海峡大橋を渡ればいよいよ愛媛県。四国に入る

来島海峡大橋は全長8キロほどのとても長い橋で、とにかく瀬戸内海の絶景を眺めながら走った

そして対岸に四国がみえてくる。

しまなみ海道は情緒と美しさが混在しているとても素敵な道だった。名前も素敵だよね。

そして、埼玉をスタートして1300キロ

ついに自分の足で新たな地へ踏み出すというのはなかなかに感慨深く、成長した気分になった

ここから四国を一周して、またここに戻ってくるのがなにより楽しみだった

四国は香川県方面にぐるっと時計回りに一周する。さぁ、新しい冒険が始まる。

走行距離 127キロ

岡山県笠岡市→愛媛県今治市

総走行距離 1347キロ

    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    imagine if you added some great photos or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Great blog!

  • My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet shall be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.

    for your blog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a

    not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your
    work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

  • Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to take into account of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the
    same time as people consider worries that they just don’t recognize about.

    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Terrific blog!

  • With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but

    Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    available for you? I wouldn’t mind producing a post
    or elaborating on some of the subjects you write with regards to here.

  • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about,

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be
    running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks

  • Everything composed made a great deal of sense.
    But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good, but suppose you
    added a post title to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean 憧れのしまなみ海道(re:日本一周#11) | JAPARNEY is a little
    plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write article titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people
    interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

    to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, that is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

  • I believe everything posted made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?

    possibly get a person’s attention? I mean 憧れのしまなみ海道(re:日本一周#11) | JAPARNEY
    is a little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  • First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
