<<南あわじの休憩どころ2 Where should Rest for your AWAJI BIKE Tour, Sth Awaji 2>>

平蔵店長が弊社に転職されるまで月イチで愛用させて頂いた南あわじのオーベルジュ・ホテルアナガが
下記のワンコ宿泊プランを提供されています。
ホテルアナガ・ワンコ宿泊プランHP
f0365484_21271389.jpg

昨年のプレオープンには平蔵店長もご招待いただき、細部までゆき届いたサービスに感動されておられました!
飼主はバイクで淡イチ、ワンコはゆっくりご家族と滞在と充実した淡路の休日は如何ですか?  
写真は部屋からの鳴門大橋を一望する眺望です。
岩屋から出発するとアナガまではおおよそ85キロ地点で初心者ならココで宿泊しても良いですが、アワイチの休息ポイントとしてもオススメします。 レーサーパンツでのホテルに入るのは気後れしますがホテル社長がキャノンデール乗りなので大丈夫!
淡路島バーガー(要予約)を鳴門大橋を眺めながらプールサイドのテラス席で最高にオシャレに頂けますよー。
f0365484_21273496.png

To tell the truth, Hotel ANAGA, is our VERY BEST FABOURITE Hotel in Japan.
Not Super Hi Class Hotel but Everything are, just comfortable. Service, Food, Wine, Price, Facility, Landscape...Comfortable and Super Reluxing.
They are now providing "Stay with Dog" service with separate Villa.
Hotel ANAGA Stay with Dog Service WEB

If you are Cycling "AWAICHI", Round Trip of Awaji Island, depart fm Nth Awaji, such as our Cafe, Circolo, Hotel ANAGA is 85km point.
Suggest to take rest at there, ask "AWAJI Burger" (Need Prior Book), with use Awaji Beef and there French food method.
You can enjoy super great view of "NARUTO Bridge", Pool side Terrace seat.
Great View, great Service, Great food... What else you need more??

<<南あわじの休憩どころ Where should Rest for your AWAJI BIKE Tour, Sth Awaji >>

淡路島一周サイクリング、通称”アワイチ”は基本、淡路島北部の岩屋からスタート、30キロ地点の洲本を過ぎ最大の難所、水仙峡の峠を過ぎて中間地点、福良までが75キロです。 福良は南あわじ最大の観光地なので週末は昼前から大にぎわいでなかなかサイクリストがゆっくり休めるポイントがありません。
そこでオススメは福良の手前、沼島のフェリー乗り場を過ぎ小さな峠を過ぎて76号線から25号線に入って直ぐの 阿万(あま)にあるアマテラス(Amaterrace)さんでの休憩をオススメします。 
アワイチのルート上ですのでその去年末開業の建物は目立ちますので通り過ぎるコトはありません。
f0365484_1542837.jpg


  Ama Terrace 参考Blog

Ama Terrace MAP

夏場は近くの阿万海水浴の一般客も来られるので混み合うかもしれませんがそれ以外はゆっくり出来る穴場スポット。
オススメは淡路島カレーと淡路島バーガー。

(一応)オーナーはサイクリスト(らしい??)のでご自慢の黒バット タイムの自転車を鑑賞できます。
チューブやワイヤーなど消耗品も揃えて頂いているのでメカトラにも対応可能です。
食べ過ぎると直ぐに始まる福良までの峠でエライ事になるので要注意!!

"AWA ICHI" mean Round cycling trip Awaji Island, basically start fm Nth Part, Iwaya Port.
Sumoto City is 30km distance fm Iwaya and may be 1st rest place. You can find any place to have small rest at the most big city in the Island.
Passing most hilly place, "SUISEN KYOU", about 200m climb, then you will reach to FUKURA, Most biggest Touring Spot in this Island.
Since TOO MANY Tourists at Weekend in Fukura, It is bit troublesome to have long relaxing time at Fukura.
Thus, recommend to have Bike Ride Rest just before Fukura.
Recommend "AMATERRACE" that newly opened last DEC, just along to "AWA ICHI" route.
The Owner of AMATERRACE is also cyclist (Ex?). You can ask Tube/Tire or wire if you have Mechanical Trouble.

The Recommend is AWAJI Curry, AWAJI Burger. But be careful, Hilly place will start just after you leave AMATERRACE...

<<淡路島から徳島へ輪行の仕方 How to move TOKUSHIMA fm Awaji Sth with your Bike >>

淡路島から四国・徳島へ自転車を伴って(輪行)渡るには鳴門海峡大橋が自転車・歩行は禁止されているので車かバスの移動のみです。
バスは垂水から本四海峡バスで渡る方法と明石からジェノバライン(フェリー)で自転車を使って淡路島・岩屋ポートに渡り、淡路島をサイクリングで縦断、南あわじの淡路南ICから淡路交通のバスを使って輪行するコトができます。

淡路交通HP

料金は徳島まで片道1100円、バス下部の荷室に入れますので輪行袋に入れての移動となりますが、機材の破損を防ぐ方策は各自で行う必要があります。
輪行の追加料金は無いようです。

裏技として南淡路ICの入口前でヒッチハイクする、という手もありますが… 場所はココ。

<<Bike Tour in AWAJI Island, Where you can park & drop yr Bike>>

One of the best way to go to Awaji Iskand fm KANSAI area is, by Car.
Fare for AKASHI Bridge is only 900yen for family car (One way). Thus suggest to go there by car if you associated with other Bike Guy.
Yes, there are several "Free Parking Space" on Nth area of Awaji Island to drop off your Bike.
There are huge Parking space beside of "MICHINOEKI AWAJI", underneath of AKASHI Bridge.

Michino Eki Parking

However, the parking space prohibit any Biker or Fishing people to park there. They put huge board to reject us.

Thus, better to park toll park, cost up to 500yen (Aprox $4.00) par day, around Iwaya Fisherman Port.


Map Around Iwaya port

Or If you stick about "Free" parking space opposite our Cafe. The Space can be parked around 30 car but "First come, first got the space".
At peak season, you can see so many Bikers Car at the area. Since it is facing our cafe, you can wait your friends coming at our Cafe, after you drop your car.
f0365484_122344.jpg


(https://www.google.co.jp/maps/place/%E3%82%AB%E3%83%95%E3%82%A7+%E3%83%81%E3%83%AB%E3%82%B3%E3%83%AD/@34.5769649,135.0256672,16.05z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xb8667f7f27188021!8m2!3d34.5748469!4d135.0245744)

Other area, Parking space of Westin Hotel Awaji is underground thus better to park Summer season (keep cool inside of your car).
Fee is also 500yen but quite difficult to get the Bike out fm the space without through Hotel Space.
Can you go through in front of Hotel Staff with bike gear?? If y have Strong heart..

<<Bike Tour in AWAJI Island, Where you Should go ”あさが来た”ロケ地>>

今朝もハワイ・世界選手権に向けTTバイク、DHポジションで花桟敷コースを周回練習。
コナの逆風をイメージしながら低回転で。
頂上(標高220m)の花桟敷は桜は未だ蕾ですが、今は菜の花が真っ盛り。
 
f0365484_101194.jpg

NHKの朝ドラ、”あさが来た”の最終回のシーンで使われたロケ地としてここは本当に有名になりました。 
あさが最後に新次朗さんに駆け寄るシーン、新次朗さんが”よう頑張ったなぁ”とあさを優しく抱き包んで終わるシーンです。
 
f0365484_1014950.png

僕も10月14日のコナの満月の下、ヨメさまに”よう頑張ったなぁ”と感動を分かち合える様、ひたすら、ただひたすら鍛錬を積み上げるのです…

Awaji Bike Touring in Early Spring

In early spring time, still bit chilly for bike ride but if you take to the mountain area, it will be a bit warmer than a costal route. (don't forget some appropriate wear for going downhill!!).
