This bicycle path (blue marks on the ground) runs from Imabari on Shikoku island to Onomichi on Honshu island, taking the rider over six islands and seven bridges. An ideal way to admire the landscape and light of the Inland Sea. It can be done in full (70km) or in part, taking the time to explore the islands and enjoy the beaches (a bicycle elevator goes down onto the small island of Uma-shima). In May, the air is heavy with the scent of orange groves.
