The organizers of the event Cycling Shimanami Kaido have invited the Hawaii Bicycling League to participate in their ride on October 30, 2016.
This is a 3500 person event across gorgeous bridges and islands between Imabari and Onomichi in the Ehime Prefecture of Japan. Some lanes are closed to traffic and there are multiple length options ranging from 40km to 150km.
There are a few complimentary entries remaining and want to extend the offer to our members to join us.
This is not an organized tour, but ideally the group of around 10 individuals can meet and discuss travel plans to help keep costs affordable and make for an enjoyable experience. Individuals would be responsible for all costs separate from the ride entry, including airfare, accommodations, food, and personal expenses. Hotel rooms are available at Imabari International Hotel.
HBL is working with China Airlines to provide discounted airfare for individuals interested in this event. Savings will be approximately 15% off retail.
This event would make a great addition to the Fall Taiwan Bike Tour (Nov 4-13). Additional flights would be approximately $350
