<<大晦日、アワイチ地獄への誘い INVITATION FOR AWAJI HELL COASTER >>

先週チルコロのFACEBOOK PAGEでも公開した大晦日31日のアワイチライドへのお誘いは当初、Rapha Festive500の最終追い込みをサポート、というオシャレライド的に始めたはずだった。 
参加者はラファウエアを着こなしたベテランオシャレライダー、だった…

蓋を開けると今年のツールドおきなわ市民210km33位と超速イケメン・エボ君の参戦を皮切りに、
トライアスロン界からはIronman常連で来年40周年のハワイを既に確保した播磨灘最凶アスリート・Mummyシンゴ、
そしてクエン酸父子鷹・石橋タケーシコーチが最愛・最速ヨメをセコンドに参戦を表明。  
更に今年神戸マラソンでサブスリーを達成、今一番ハワイに近い牛乳・石塚くん、
変態ロングライダー”どこでも自走おぢさん”岡氏など腕自慢の手練れが次々と参戦を表明。 
”蓋”は煮えたぎる地獄釜の蓋だった…。 
  

そして血の匂いを嗅ぎつけたサメの如く、殺し屋集団・LifeRideからクラッシャーマツイが日本代表クラスの若手を引き連れ乱入するとの連絡。
貧脚ヤマダはそこで牛乳・マツイ・そして悪徳不動産王・策士マツゲンを召喚し、甲南大OBカルテルを組織し先輩特権で後方列車で逃げ切るコトも考えるが策士の相方、ブロッコリー・カズが先日の全日本シクロで仕上がった状態で参戦予定を表明。 
なのでこの二人で逃げるコトは明白…

慌てて企画者特権発動、大晦日とゆーことで108km(煩悩の数)のショートコース(逃げ道ともいう)を策定したところ神の脚を持つ女・コータリ女史、そしてアイルランド・トラック銀メダルのエミ子が参戦予定。 
前門の虎、後門の狼。

どうころンでもボクがついていける要素が全く見当たら無いライドだが、この2週間、練習の為の練習に励むしかない。
間違いなくこの連中についていければコナへの手応えも掴める。  
着いて行け無くとも現時点のどん底具合を改めて思い知るコトが来年へのバネになるはず。 
そのまま凹ンで再起不能になったりして…。

まだまだ淡路のKOM・夜のBig Magnumオートモくん、眼からレーザービーム氏など悪魔・鬼・モンスターなどロード、トライアスロン、はてはトラックなど各魔界からの魑魅魍魎を召喚予定。
年末最後に地獄の業火に我が身を投じたいド変態、魑魅魍魎と刃を交わしたい命知らずの勇者を募集!

またライド中の平蔵のお守りと帰ってきた時のモツ汁の温め留守番隊、及びライドのサポート隊も募集してますンでよろしくー!
参戦表明連絡ライド後のモツ汁の用意があるからはコチラまで連絡するコト!!!

”男には、負けるとわかっていても戦わなければならない時がある”

"<<Guide for Cycling Around Awaji Island ""AWAICHI""  >>"

Awaji Island is one of the best destinations for bike tours in the Kansai Area.
It has a great landscape including the Gulf of Osaka, many restaurants with fresh ingredients from Awaji Island, a variety of cycling routes and open-armed hospitality of people on the island make for an exciting trip.
This is why Awaji Island attracts countless cyclists from around the Kansai region who visit the island to cycle or train even during the winter season.
A round-trip ride of Awaji Island is called "AWA-ICHI" which is an abbreviation of the Japanese, “round-trip (bike ride) of
Awaji Island”, or "AWAJI-Shima Isshuu ".
The total distance of AWA-ICHI is 150km, with approx. 1500m of total elevation.
For the average cyclist, this may take a full day of cycling, while taking several stops to rest and enjoy an Awaji lunch.

In this article we will focus on the route guide, looking at several especially complicated places where it is easy to get lost.
The Basic AWA-ICHI starts at the north of the island, IWAYA, one entrance of the island and port where boats connect with the mainland, Kobe/Akashi.
(How to reach to Awaji Island by Boat: refer http://circoloh.exblog.jp/27693418/ )

The island also can be reached by highway bus from the center of KOBE City, SANNOMIYA Station to IWAYA
(How to transfer fm KOBE by Bus: refer http://circoloh.exblog.jp/27811389/ )
From SANNOMIYA to IWAYA/UZAKI Bus Station is just in front of our Cafe, Circolo.
It takes 45 min. & the bus fare is 900yen.

Start cycling from North Awaji Island, IWAYA. Start your ride by going clockwise around the island by following route #28 down to the south.

"Enjoy the coast-side ride and pass beside Westin Hotel Awaji, then down to HIGASHIURA Town."

"Be careful about traffic when you pass through the town.
It is not as busy as Osaka or Kobe but please be careful of the local drivers as they do not drive so well.
In particular, elderly local drivers may not recognize bicycles well."

"After riding for 10km, you will reach a funny Buddha statue temple, that is already closed and in ruins."
f0365484_11191294.png

"Soon after you pass the statue, you will come to a fork in the road. Bikes should stay left, the road to the right is the bypass for cars."
f0365484_11202771.png

"After you take the road to the left, pass through SANO Town, an old fishing village. After about a 3km-ride through the fishing village, you will meet up again with the car bypass road above. "
