  • Osaka International Airport (KIX) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

No place rivals Japan when it comes to providing an abundance of incredible experiences in a small amount of space. We’re offering a unique departure to explore Japan’s longest cycle friendly bicycle bridge system in the world, the Shimanami Kaido. Followed by a remote ride through the foothills into Hiroshima with a visit to the Peace Memorial-a World Heritage Site.

The remainder of our trip sees us travelling further south by the high-speed Shinkansen train to the third largest island of Japan-Kyushu. A mountainous region known for its soaring volcanic peaks, steaming hot springs, peaceful beaches and slow-paced living. We will further explore this amazing island by bike, staying in traditional ryokan inns along the way.

SV Travel: Corsica

  • Google Calendar ICS

Corsica, with its Italian and French history and rebellious, independent spirit, feels far removed from the mainland – and it is all the better for it. With 650 miles of unspoilt palm-fringed coastline, a spine of wild, rugged mountains soaring to 10,000 ft., and an almost unlimited choice of challenging, winding roads – not to mention a robust and delicious local cuisine – it’s an utterly seductive destination for cyclists.
