Cyclists friendly hostel in Shimanami Kaido
What is Guesthouse CYCLONOIE?

 

This is a guesthouse (simple accommodation) for cyclists at the gateway to the Shikoku side of the Shimanami Kaido, located in Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture. As CYCLONOIE is operated by staff who love bicycle trips and also handle bicycle travel guides locally,  here you will find all the information and services you need for travelers planning to cycling along the Shimanami Kaido. Then, I would like to introduce the living room, kitchen, bicycle garage and bedrooms in our house.

Shimanami Guesthouse CYCLONOIE has the best location for travelers who want to enjoy cycling on the Shimanami Kaido. JR Imabari Station, where our house is located, is the gateway on the Shikoku side of the Shimanami Kaido and is the 0 km point of the cycling road. As the owner and staff of CYCLONOIE love bicycle trips, and also handle cycling guides, so you will find all the information and services travelers need. This is exactly the "cycling base".

Many travelers come here for various purposes: not only cyclists traveling on the Shimanami Kaido, but also backpackers, motorbike-riders, pedestrians, pilgrims of 88 temple in Shikoku, rail trips and business travelers. This diversity might be something surprise of our hostel.

At first we introduce access from JR Imabari Station. Having said that, CYCLONOIE is so close to the station that you need to be careful not to go too far. After exiting the east exit of the station, please turn right at the bus terminal. It looks like the photo above.
