If you wanna check out the route.
"B" stop, the first of my original destinations, Hiroshima Transportation Museum.
There was a interesting setup of cycling machines found in gyms connected to a TV screen, where you get a virtual cycling route of 7 possible destinations! Pretty cool, but it was too realistic! Uphills meant more resistance while pedaling... One of the destinations was Mt. Fuji. The moment I saw the start point, an insane incline I left the machine!
But it was rather interesting to see so many people at the machine eager to have a go at it. :)
"C & D" stops were impromtu stops, of a comic cafe, karaoke, clothes and bicycle store...
"E" stop was the second planned stopped and I rode up a long incline to a nice view...
The Peace Pagoda at the top...
Great view, no? I had more impromptu stops along the way but lets get down to the point.
Riding my bike has really made me think about how I can the most from my trip, linking up destinations with the route to where I'm going. It saves me both time and money, gives me a good work out and totally makes my weekends worth while.
Somehow, when you are taking a train saw, from point A to point B. and there are 5 stops along the way.... If all 5 stops had something interesting like a shopping mall/ temple/ good food. Will you stop at every stop? I know I will on my bike!
