DAY 0 & 1 Overnight ferry & Round Izu Oshima
Just one boat ride from Takeshiba Station, located right next to Hamamatsucho in the heart of the city, and you can start your bicycle trip instantly upon arrival and disembarkation! Izu Oshima is a perfect destination for a weekend ride if you make full use of Friday night's overnight stay on the boat and Saturday and Sunday. The island itself is a modest 50km in circumference, but the course is hilly and challenging. However, Tsucchi and I have conquered a lot of the steep hills in the past, so I affirmed, "Well, we've got plenty of time to finish!" We thought that we would be able to enjoy the ride without any problems, but we had a big mechanical problem right at the beginning of the ride, so it turned out to be a crazy trip.
