Shimanami Rent-a-Cycle rents out bicycles for cyclists who want to enjoy the Shimanami Kaido by bike. There are 13 terminals where you can rent bicycles, including Onomichi Port, Imabari Station, and on all the islands along the Shimanami Sea Route. With the exception of some bicycles, such as electric bicycles, all bicycles can be ridden away (returned at a different terminal than the one where the bicycle was rented).
Moment of Joy
At the Shimanami Rental Bicycle Service, you can choose from six types of bicycles: small cross bikes, cross bikes, mama-chari (basket bikes), tandem bikes, electrically power assisted bicycles, and bicycles for children. For those who are not familiar with bicycles or are not confident about their physical strength, the electric bicycles are recommended as they can be pedaled easily by electric power. The rental fee is per day for both adults and children (elementary school students and younger). If you return the bike to a terminal on the same island as the one where you rented it, the deposit will be refunded.
