I finished my ride at 10am, and at that point I had been awake for 28 hours and did approximately 340km. I was way out of it. I truly think I should have spent the while sunny day exploring Shimanami Kaido, but the fatigue took over. I stopped plenty, took pictures and went really slow, it mentally I was not able to appreciate the awesomeness of the whole ride.
This is a ride better done with no rush and with a group. But the pictures tell the story better than I do.
I will add some more contents to Instagram later!
Worst thing was, when I arrived to town, my hotel check in was at 2pm, so I changed without showering, put on my sneakers and head to town. Plenty of temples and stairs at Onomichi. Stairs didn’t feel so inviting though…
