The second day at Kumejima was a day for cycling. Although I had prepared to take my folding bike on the plane, I decided I did not want any checked baggage on this trip and therefore left it behind.
We rented bikes at the island, and as to be expected, the bikes provided were not in the best condition. The only shop with nice bikes was closed, so we set out on single gear commuter bikes for the journey. These would have been fine minus one large climb on the island that required us to push the bikes uphill
The view from the top was…
Sugarcane, Kumejimas main export.
Cycling stats for the day.
Looking back I wish I had carried my own bike for comfort, but I still enjoyed the adventure. In total, the journey was 40km, it would have been another 10 if we went down the first path. However, that was a trip for another day.
