Shimanami Kaido with First Over Everything

Bike Packing Japan hasn’t had a chance to ride the iconic Shimanami Kaido (しまなみ海道) route yet but Bradley from First Over Everything has and he made a video this time last year. As it’s one of the most popular rides in Japan for foreign tourists it’s well worth taking the time out to watch. As I haven’t ridden it yet I’m not in a position to offer advice on where to stay etc but as it’s so popular logistic shouldn’t be a problem.
