急ぐってつまんねぇな(re:日本一周#32)

32日目の朝

ネットカフェで準備をしていると衝撃のニュースが飛び込んでくる

台風12号が九州に直撃するらしい

しかも見事に縦断のコースだ

5日に鹿児島空港で沖縄行きの飛行機を予約してしまっているヨコイシは焦る

明日からは天気が崩れるのが目に見えていたし、なにより台風が接近する中走る危険を考えれば、天気が安定している今日、距離を稼がなければいけないのは仕方のないことだった

ということでヨコイシは大分から宮崎まで、1日で180キロの道のりを強行することに決める

32日目の強行過程

走り始めてすぐ

宮崎まで187キロの表示を見て絶望

「分かってることだろ!やるしかないやん」

そう自分に言い聞かせて、奮い立たせる

大分からまずは山道へ

「陸の孤島」と九州の人たちに言われる宮崎に入るには山越えをクリアしなければならない

まずは山道の細かいアップダウンを越えながら、50キロ走って豊後大野市を抜けて佐伯市へ

佐伯から宮崎に入るために400mの峠越えが待っている

気合いを入れ直して峠を登り始めた

しかしまぁ180キロ走るこの日に400m級の峠はなかなかきつい

温存していた体力もまずここで奪われる

10キロほど登り続けて、やっとの思いで頂上へ

ここからはゆるく山道を下りながら、宮崎県境はもうすぐだ

下っている途中の道の駅では、逆方向からやってきた日本一周チャリダーのたかぴーさんという方に偶然お会いして、おにぎりと宮崎名物の地鶏唐揚げをいただいた

貴重な情報交換もしながら、楽しいひと時を過ごす。

そしてたかぴーさんと別れ、また走り始めるとすぐに宮崎県に入った

宮崎県に入った時点で時刻はちょうど12時

進んだ距離は90キロ

目的の宮崎市までもあと90キロ…

考えれば考えるほど地獄だからとりあえず考えるのをやめて走る

県境から最初の町延岡市街までは渓流沿いを30キロ下りながら向かう

今日180キロ走る中で唯一の救いは薄曇りなことだった

おかげで暑さで体力を消耗することはなく、変に汗をかいて水分を失うこともなく走れる

延岡市街に辿り着いてからはまっすぐ南へ

ひたすら海沿いを走りながら宮崎市を目指す

道中

トトロ駅なる不思議な駅名の駅もあったけど、立ち寄る余裕はなくてスルー

延岡市街からさらに40キロ走って日向市に入ると、本当は今日野宿するはずだった道の駅日向に辿り着く

とりあえず地元っぽい日向ウォーターを飲んで休憩したけど、やっぱり先に進むことにした

この道の駅は近くに温泉もあるし、割と野宿には完璧だったんだけど、後ろ髪引かれる思いで先に進む

そして宮崎市にむけて爆走してると気になる文字が出てくる

「名物 チキン南蛮」

このころまだチキン南蛮が宮崎名物だとは知らなくて、純粋にチキン南蛮大好きっ子からしたら食べたくて仕方がなくなった

そして結局

食べてしまう

急ぎたい欲も三大欲求には勝てなかった

正直疲れてたし、お腹も減ったし、とりあえず体力回復も兼ねてチキン南蛮を満喫する

ここから宮崎市まで残り40キロ

正直足も重くなってたけど

ここまできたら180キロ走り切りたいという思いしかなくなっていた

夕暮れの中

走る

影法師が長くなる前に

まだ空が青いうちに

重い体に鞭打って走る

そして日が暮れるギリギリに

無事宮崎県庁へ

初めて180キロ走って思ったことは

「急いでも何も面白くないな」

ただそれだけ

自転車で旅をしてる本質を忘れそうになる

空が青ければ立ち止まって上を見上げて

海が透き通っていれば立ち止まって飛び込んで

綺麗な夕日が出ていれば立ち止まって眺めて

ゆっくり行くから見えてくる風景があるから

ゆっくり進むからこそ感じるものがあるから

自転車旅はいいんだなぁと改めて思う

今回は台風が来てたとはいえ、もうあまり無理はしたくないなぁと思った宮崎の旅路だった

走行距離 183キロ

大分県大分市→宮崎県宮崎市

総走行距離 3228キロ

今日も見ていただきありがとうございます!

    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative
    to read?

  • I believe that is among the so much significant information for me.

    And i am glad studying your article. However wanna
    commentary on few normal issues, The website taste is wonderful, the articles is really
    nice : D. Excellent activity, cheers

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any
    solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  • Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed
    to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say
    to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries
    that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people could take a signal. Will
    probably be back to get more. Thanks

  • I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog visitors have complained about
    my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  • Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working
    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a
    lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a fair
    price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

  • Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard
    time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you might be interested feel free to
    send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Great blog by the way!

  • Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    your new updates.

  • Hi, There’s no doubt that your site could possibly be
    having web browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your website
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads
    up! Apart from that, wonderful site!

  • My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.

    I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog like

    do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online.

  • I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this site.
    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content from you in the future as well.
    In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own, personal
    site now 😉

  • The very crux of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not really work well with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you might do well to fill in all those gaps. If you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly be impressed.. generic for lexapro

  • Today, I went to the beach with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year 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. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  • Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Thanks for sharing superb informations. Your web-site is very cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have on this web site. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found simply the information I already searched everywhere and simply could not come across. What an ideal web-site.

  • Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I intended to send you this bit of remark just to say thanks a lot as before for your extraordinary tricks you’ve provided at this time. This has been extremely generous of people like you to make easily what exactly most people would’ve offered for an electronic book to earn some money on their own, certainly considering the fact that you might have done it in case you desired. The guidelines also worked as a great way to realize that other people have a similar dream really like my own to figure out a great deal more with regard to this condition. I am sure there are some more enjoyable times ahead for those who examine your website.
