This was a pretty short cycle today, only 65KM. I had covered most of the distance the day before. The only real difficulty was the mountain I had to cross to get to Matsuyama, but the road followed the course of a river valley that ran between the mountains so it wasn’t a huge climb.
The mountains that speared me from Matsuyama.
That evening my host took me up one of the hills for a great view of the city at sunset.
