Shimanami Kaido Ride 2017 – How my ride was affected by typhoon Noru

 

The weather forecast provided by JMA (Japan Meteorological Agency) was excellent. Typhoon Noru was hitting the Seto Inland Sea area on 7 August 2017 as predicted.

Since it was also projected that Noru would be leaving the Japan main island one day later, I had re-worked my cycling plan and changed our cycling routes in order not to ruin our holidays.

 

Sometimes, what seems to be a good planning may go unexpected.

    So, you stayed in the hotel during the storm — no major damage I assume?
    Glad you were able to complete most of your itinerary following Noru.

      Typhoon Noru caused lots of damages in the Kagoshima area. We were lucky that there was not much impact in Onomichi and the Hiroshima Prefecture.

      We didn’t stay in the hotel and we just went for a short train tour to Kurashiki.
