<<淡路島はいよいよビワの季節! Loquat season in Awaji Isl>>

梅雨のシーズンに入ればローラー嫌いなボクはちょっとでも晴れ間があればせっせと花桟敷の周回コースへ。
今朝も雨が降るギリギリで花桟敷周回練。 腰の具合が悪いのでシッティングで淡々と。

淡路島はこれから短い枇杷のシーズンになりビワ狩りの観光客でいっぱいになりますが、花桟敷の周回コース上には野生のビワがあちこちに自生しています。
練習中そろそろ良さそうな実(木ではない)にアタリをつけておいて明日くらいには…と鳥たちとのノンキな争奪戦を繰り広げるのが、辛い練習の楽しみ。
ちょっと止まって少し硬くて小さな実を頬張ると市販のとは全く異なる、酸味の効いた滋味が味わえます。
ビワの酸味が疲労に効くのか、食べながら走ると次第に集中力が回復します。 
アワイチコースでもあちこち野良ビワが自生していますので(野良を確認して!)野生ならではの味わいを堪能してください!

Loquat is quite minor fruit but one of main product in Awaji Island.
Now, we are having loquat season and you can find loquat tour (eat as much as you want from tree) especially north part island.
Beside of the loquat farm, we can find WILD LOQUAT tree if you carefully looked at while you riding bike.

My home training course, HANASAZIKI (Flower view point on top of mountain) round course has so many wild loquat tree, on road side.
Not same as farm made one, wild loquat is so sour but tasty. And good refresh for your ride, I guarantee.
The Hanasaziki round course is 18km, 330m elevation and take 40min around.
Not only wild loquat but also you can enjoy great view ( https://circoloh.exblog.jp/27698427/ ).

So why not???

"<<Guide board for Cycling Around Awaji Island ""AWAICHI-Kun""  >>"

As previously informed in Japanese yesterday, we are currently developing the "Awaichi-kun" project.
Our goal is to solve the problem of cyclists becoming lost on the AWAICHI (round Awaji) cycle route.
As we indicated previously, there are several points where it is easy to become lost, particularly in the South area of Awaji Island.
We wanted to put a "Bike Jersey Tobita" on each point. We would like to promote this further by creating a launch event for cyclists.
f0365484_13303120.jpg

The character of "Tobita-kun" was born in Shiga prefecture, to promote driver awareness to young children playing near the road.
Our plan is, ask each Brand/Shop/Pro or Local Team
provide a custom painted Mr. TOBITA, each wearing an original team jersey.

We aim for "Awaichi Tobita-kun" to not only be a navigation point, but a PR opportunity for businesses and a source of motivation for cyclists.
Just imagine, when you are ride in Awaji Island, and you see the "Awaichi Tobita-kun" with the same bike jersey as you, it may be big help to get you over those mountains down South!
We believe that the board could become an iconic photo point for SNS.

At this moment, we are considering putting approx. 20 boards, focusing on the South area of Awaji Island.
Please refer our "AWAICHI" English Guide,so you can get a concrete image of the area.
See the following Awaichi Cycling Guide for your image.


The problems we must solve are;

1. Cooperation from government section:
We may need to be authorized by Hyogo Prefecture or Tourism Section
The Authorization (indicated on the board) will be to prevent any damage caused by people. The authorization also help to get cooperation from locals.

2. Cost:
The blank boards will be supplied with the facial features included. Each Team/Shop must create a custom paint (or digital print wrapping) for their own "Bike Jersey Tobita".
We will establish an Event Committee, based on our last project team, Awaji Bikers Connection (ABC)

Our estimated cost is 40,000yen(aprox US$350.00) per Board excluding custom paint.
This cost includes the board/anchor, travel/communication cost to negotiate with Local Government, ABC support and support Shop/Team/Brand.
We will calculate a more accurate cost when the ABC establish and confirm the number of supporters

3. Maintenance:
The responsibility of the board maintenence will be with each of the individual advertisers.
We aim that "Awaichi Tobita-kun" will be a low maintenance investment. The idea is that board advertisers can check on the board when they ride in Awaji Island. Or, local ABC riders can check on the boards and inform the advertiser if there is any maintenance needed.
Above is just idea, the details can be confirmed at a later stage.

4. Copyright:
Studio Mahoroba currently owns the copyright of "Tobita-kun".
We have asked them for the use of "Tobita-kun" . We aim to cover copyright costs through the Launch Event entry fees.


The outline of our proposed schedule is to put the board by "Golden Week", Japanese spring holiday season start from APR/END
to MAY/BEG...........



Yeah... Unfortunately we got reply fm the copyright holder 2days ago, say "NO" even we indicate quite huge price to use the character for the event.
Without any proper reason... You may be, may be see the Bike Jersey Tobita-kun on somewhere,
Not Awaji island...May be...

Anyway, we still need to put the sign board navigate the cyclist who wish to enjoy "Awaichi", round island cycling. So we will make original character, "Awaichi-Kun (Mr. Awaichi)".
If you, you have any idea, we would like to proceed with you!!
f0365484_13345523.jpg
One we have your confirmed interest, we will open a Facebook Event Page that so Team/Shop/Company or individual person can join to the event!
I look forward to hearing from you!!

"<<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."
f0365484_11172232.png

"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."
f0365484_15154739.png

"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. "
f0365484_11212264.png

"Then, proceed south through SIZUKI Town, and continue your ride to the center of the island, SUMOTO City."
f0365484_11222746.png

"The entrance to SUMOTO City is ""TAKENOGUCHI North"".
f0365484_11234866.png

For ""AWAICHI"" take the left pass over the iron bridge (Route #76)."
f0365484_11241959.png

"Soon you will pass “MARUNAKA"" (a big supermarket), and
f0365484_11252755.png
"Pass SUMOTO Onsen (hot spring) town."
f0365484_11265009.png
"After about a 3km-ride from ""TAKENOGUHI"" intersection, you will see a convenience store, ""Family Mart,” on your left."
"The convenience store is almost the last store until halfway point, FUKURA Town, at the south of Awaji Island."
It is a good idea to take a rest for the first half of the ride.
f0365484_11321776.png
"After about 6km, you will reach to YURA Town, through the entrance gate bridge."
f0365484_11361869.png
"Passing through the village, you will reach to YURA Junior High School. "
f0365484_11371809.png
"Turn left at the intersection just past the school to continue your AWAICHI. It is very easy to lose your way here. Please be careful!!!"

"Passing a shipyard you will reach a fork in the road"
f0365484_11403808.png

"Take the right toward the hill, ""TACHIKAWA SUISENKYOU"", the highest peak, a climb of around 150m."
f0365484_11434822.png

"Descend to the coastal road and you will cycle with a Great view"
f0365484_11445849.png

"After about 8km, you will pass through HABU fishing village, the gateway to NUSHIMA Island by boat."
f0365484_11471007.png
"With Awaji Island on your right side, start the climb up the 100m high steep slope."
f0365484_11482971.png

"From the top, ride down to AMA Town. "
f0365484_11495062.png

"Please be careful of the point where you have to turn left. The following picture is the intersection to turn left, Route #25 to FUKURA Town."
f0365484_11503815.png

"After around 200m, you will reach a Y-shape intersection. Both ways will take you to FUKURA Town"
f0365484_11520875.png
"If you take left road, via FUKIAGE Camping site, you can enjoy a panoramic outlook of the huge NARUTO Bridge toward SHIKOKU Island."
f0365484_11552816.png
f0365484_11561413.png
"Enjoy the downhill ride into FUKURA Town, a popular tourist destination and famous for NARUTO Whirlpool Tour or museum of the traditional puppet show, ""NINGYOU-JYOURURI""."
f0365484_11570936.png
f0365484_11580942.png
f0365484_12025969.png
"By this point, you will have ridden around 75km, the half-way point of ""AWAICHI"" Ride.
Enjoy the local food, fish or Awaji Pork for your lunch."

"Also there is a convenience store there. You can replenish your bottles or gels"
f0365484_12013936.png

"After you take a rest at these points, take the road along the fishing port.
f0365484_12042929.png

Be careful, there are some complicated points so you may get lost."
f0365484_12081205.png
f0365484_12451867.png
"Passing through the village, you will soon reach a Y-shaped intersection. Take the left (go straight) road."
f0365484_12092033.png

"Then soon you will see the following corner"
f0365484_12245700.png
"Turn right and go up the quite steep slope for around 20m, then turn right to keep climbing, heading toward ANAGA town."
f0365484_12314680.png

"After several ups & downs, you will reach to the following T-shape intersection"
f0365484_12440475.png
f0365484_12462869.png
"If you turn right, you can take a short cut. For a full ""AWAICHI"", turn left to MARUYAMA fishing village, which leads to the west side coastal road."
f0365484_12472821.png

"Pass through the village and enjoy the coastal road, with a great view of huge windmill generators on your right side."
f0365484_12482725.png
"Then, you will reach a traditional Japanese roof tile factory village area, MINATO Town."
"The tiles are famous for their unique dark gray and silver color. You will see their bridge with uses the material."
"Go across the bridge into MINATO town"
f0365484_12514090.png



"Pass in front of the small stores"
f0365484_12523566.png



"Turn right for ""AWAICHI"" route"
f0365484_12541112.png

"Passing through MINATO Town, you will soon reach to ""KEINO-MATSUBARA"", a famous beach spot, and continue on Route #31"
f0365484_12550245.png
f0365484_12581931.png

Pass ""GOSHIKI (Five Color Sand) Beach""
f0365484_12585729.png

<<アワイチ・七”看板娘”ライド! 淡路の秘宝を訪ねて… >>

昨日27日の月曜は快晴。 しかも11月末にしては非常に暖かく絶好のライド日和。
アワイチ・七”看板娘”ライドを予定していたのでそそくさと起き出し平蔵さんぽへ。
6時間ほどお留守番してもらうので今のうちにしっかりさんぽしてもらう。
道中、平蔵氏が落ちてたエロDVDを見つけられる。 今日のライドを暗示している様…
 

出発予定の9時前になっても誰一人として現れない。
オノレの人徳に苦笑いしながらサイクリング用厚着からTT用の薄着に着替え、腹と脚、腕にHOT BALMを塗る。
コレを塗るだけで薄手のウエア1枚分くらいになるので走行抵抗になるガサガサしたウエアを着なくて済み、かつ肌の保湿もできるのでオススメ。
ただし堺の某強豪トライアスリート・ヒゲ◯氏の様に間違ってチン◯に付着するととんでもない事態になり、その強烈な刺激にクセになるそうで注意が必要。
  
f0365484_11582262.jpg

出発5分前に仏のマツモト氏・Young Gunウエノ氏が合流。
出発10分後には仏・マツモト氏が解脱。
洲本のサントピアのコンビニも止まることなく快調に水仙峡の峠へ。 
今日の課題はハワイの反省より空力を上げる為DHパッドを各2cm内側に詰めたポジションのロングライドでの耐性チェックと坂でのアウター固定のパワー練習。
後方でYoungGunがバキバキゴリゴリと勾配局面でムリクリな変速をしている気配。 彼女にもムリクリ、ヘタクソな◯◯ク◯してンねやろーなーと想像しながらエッチら登る。 南淡路水仙峡ラインの素晴らしい眺めと気候を二人で堪能しながら土生(ハブ)の坂もアウターで。 
頂上を抜けしばらくすると阿万(アマ)のアマテラス( http://a-terrasse.net/ )に。 
今日の主題のアワイチ・七看板娘のレナちゃんに会いに。
YoungGunが追いつくまでインナーを干し、身なりを整え店内へ。
いきなりレナちゃんの歓迎! ”可愛い❤️!” まるで白虎や玄武抜きでいきなりシャドウ総帥が現れた様なインパクト。
おぢさんはドギマギしながら席を案内され勧められるまま”レナ❤のランチ(淡路島カレーとも言うらしい…)”をいただく。
  
f0365484_11584592.jpg

色々な部分が硬直しながらありがたくいただき、記念写真を取り次の目的地、影道五重塔青龍の間、郡家のとうげへ向かう。
  
f0365484_11590439.jpg

南あわじの坂で”レナ❤️ランチ”のリバースを辛うじて押しとどめ、途中無賃乗車に乗っかかるローディーを振り払い、売り切れた脚を引きづり青龍の間へ。
身なりを整えイザ、青龍の間に入ると屈強なおばさま方がカウンターに居並ぶ後方にその宝石を発見。
しかし既に我々はシャドウ総帥との戦いで疲労困憊でこの鉄壁のディフェンスを越え、宝石にコンタクトする事は出来なかった。
せいぜい、フランクフルトをかぢりながらチラチラと宝石に目をやり、ディフェンス越しの盗み撮りする位のヘタレであった。
なんで、写真は了承もなんも得ていませんので掲載しません。 みなさん頑張って郡家のとうげさんに行って見てください。 
淡路牛を使ったコロッケが60円と破格です。 ぜひコロッケと宝石を堪能してみてください。

おばさまのフィニッシュブローに敗れたYoungGunとヤマダを失意の中、店を後にしノロノロとチルコロに到着。
仏・マツモト氏と鬼態も合流し、相変わらずのエロ談義にチルコロの夜はふけていった…

<<淡路市が一番賑わう日・7月23日(日)・Most valuable FIREWORK Festival in AWAJI Island!!>>

今週末日曜の23日は淡路市主催の花火大会がチルコロからホンの1キロほど先の国営明石海峡公園にて開催されます。
当日は約5万人の見物客が訪れ夜中まで周辺は賑わいます。
チルコロも例年この日は夜遅くまで営業、コロナビールと炭火グリルのハーブソーセージの屋台を店頭に出す予定です。


例年打ち上げられる花火は約5千から6千発。 これは10人の観客に対し1ツの花火が打ち上げられる計算とすると関西他地域の花火大会ではトップクラスのお値打ち花火大会といえるカモ?!

混雑するのは夕方4時くらいから徐々に増え、8時前くらいに打ち上げ開始、約30分の迫力ある花火がチルコロの店先で堪能できます。
ゼヒ淡路島サイクリング後、チルコロでシャワー、着替えて炭火焼きソーセージを頬張りながら花火見物はいかが??
 
f0365484_13512065.jpg

JUL/23(SUN), just in front of CIRCOLO (Aprox 1.0km far), we will have FIREWORK Festival.
The Festival will show us around 5000 to 6000 number of Firework to the Audience, around 50000 people visit usually.
This is, estimate as, 1 Firework to 10 Audience. So we can say most Valued Firework festival in KANSAI District.

At the time, CIRCOLO will open Charcoal Grilled Herb Sausage & CORONA Beer Stand, in front of our Place.
So STRONGLY Suggest to come Awaji Island for Bike Ride, then take shower & change at CIRCOLO, then Bite the Sausage & Beer, watching Firework.

<<ビワは自然のADEステーション? What you should try in Awaji Isl. "LOQUAT">>

One of the famous products of Awaji Island, such as "AWAJI Beef" "Awaji Onion", "Fresh Fish", "LOQUAT" ("BIWA" in Japanese)".
Not so popular fruit but it is unique & quite seasonable one that you can feel the real "Summer coming", since Loquat market is too small and
no one cultivate it with Greenhouse....

Anyway, Not only Cultivating BIWA, but also you can find native (wild?) Biwa in Awaji Island in this season.
You even can find out native one along to coast road. Thus, If you find native BIWA tree, it can be a great ADE Station to replenish your thirst.
f0365484_1039046.jpg

Needless to say, You carefully check whether it is CULTIVATING one or NATIVE...
Cultivating one alway covered with Paper bag to avoid any bird attack.
BIWA (Loquat) season is too short. Maybe 2weeks, MID/JUN.

Enjoy AWAJI Cycling and Safe Ride!!
f0365484_10393852.jpg


今まさに淡路島は枇杷(ビワ)の最盛期!  
サイズは販売しているモノより小さいですが野生ビワが花桟敷の山岳コースだけでなく、淡イチコースの至る所で見つける事ができます。
小さいモノなら2ツくらい、ジャージでさっと拭いて口に放り込みモゴモゴ。 質素ですが自然の甘さと酸っぱさがライドで疲れた体に染み渡ります!
ビワのシーズンは短く、今週末がほぼ、最終です。  
当然、いただくのは野良ビワで栽培しているのは御法度、充分チェックして鳥たちにヤられる前にどうぞ!!

<<<<Bike Tour in AWAJI Island, What you Should eat ”淡路・B級グルメ サイクルガイド!>>

Awaji Beef (KOBE Beef is almost same as Awaji Beef, Awaji Beef Fatten at KOBE Side) is one of MOST famous original ingredient in Awaji Island.
However, due of the price, we cannot eat as daily bases (if you are ordinal people....).
f0365484_13532008.jpg


One of the most my favorite food, cheap but local tasty food, during Awaji Cycling, is "Japanese Potato Croquette", Deep Fried Mashed Potato.
Usually, Mashed potato is mixed with Chop Beef & Onion, the taste is alway effected by the Quality of Meet & Onion.
Onion is, needless to say, Most popular ingredients in Awaji Island. And Awaji Beef! You can imagine what the Best marriage!!!
Such a Best marriage, you can eat on the way of your Awaji Cycling with cheap price!!

If you start your cycling fm Circolo, our cafe, you go down Sth about 20km, then turn right to East coast of Awaji Island via IZANAGI Shrine.
Then, you go through incense factory area ( CIRCOLO Tour Guide Site ), soon you will reach to a corner of GUNGE village, beside of Police station.
100m west fm the corner, you will find butcher, name as "TOUGE"

They provide one of the best Croquette as mentioned as above.
Purchase one of plane Croquette (aprox 50cents!!!) fm their many variety, bring them to the Fisherman's port near by.
Watching sunset down into sea, fighting against Local cats that try to get the Croquette, you are almost in HEAVEN!!!

チルコロスタートで28号線を南下、約20キロ地点の志筑(しづき)で西へ右折し伊奘諾(イザナギ)神宮 にお参り、線香工場の立ち並ぶ竹谷集落を抜け、西岸の郡家の交差点(郡家警察署)の4ツ角を少し西に移動すると”とうげ”という肉屋さんがあります。 ここのコロッケ(一個65円から)を数個買って近くの漁港でボケーっとコロッケを狙う地元ネコと戦いながら熱々のコロッケを頬張れば、幸福になるのに本当に必要なモノが理解できるでしょう…⁈

<<淡路島でのメカトラ対応リスト! How to survive fm Bike Mechanic Trouble in Awaji Isl>>

淡路島は関西屈指のサイクル環境ではあるが大阪や神戸の様な大手プロショップは存在せず、チューブラタイヤ一つ入手が困難??
まして初心者ライドでのメカトラ、しかも洲本を過ぎた難所、モンキーセンターの峠などで落車→メカトラはもうサバイバルそのもの。
チルコロも5年目、周りのメカトラバックアップ環境も徐々にではあるが整いつつあるので現時点でのお助け拠点をマトメてみました。
