How do you rent a bicycle on the Shimanami Kaido?

On the cycling course on the Shimanami Kaido, bicycle rental facilities are substantial. When starting from Onomichi, bicycle rental facilities are very close to Onomichi Station. In this page, I would like to introduce information about bicycle rental facilities in Onomichi.

Where is the bicycle rental terminal in Onomichi?

To get to the Onomichi Rental Cycle Terminal, walk out of the south ticket gate of Onomichi Station and walk about 5 minutes.

The guarantee fee is the money you deposit when you rent a bicycle. For example, if you rent a bicycle in Onomichi and return it to Onomichi, the guarantee fee will be returned. However, if you rent a bicycle in Onomichi and return it in Imabari, this guarantee fee will not be returned.

Manners for cycling on the Shimanami Kaido cycling course


Put on your helmet

On cycling courses in Japan, riding a helmet is the way to go.

When you rent a bicycle, you can rent a helmet for free, so wear your helmet and enjoy cycling.


Cycling in the left row

In the Shimanami Kaido cycling course, it is good manners to cycle in a row on the left. Especially on the cycling course on the bridge, the road width is narrow, and there are also oncoming and opposing bicycles, so be sure to cycle on the left side in one row.


When stopping your bicycle, move to the left and stop.

From the bridge of the Shimanami Kaido cycling course, you can see many islands in the Seto Inland Sea. You want to park your bike and take beautiful pictures. When you park your bicycle, park in one row and park on the left. Then take a picture.
