今日は、AWARE代表 榮さんガイドの元西阿波の歴史を体感しました。 大一級河川吉野川をベースに徳島の歴史を見てきました👀 自転車ならでわの花の香りや景色が見えて、とても楽しかったです。 次回も参加したいと思います。 色々な歴史をブロンプトンで体験したいです。

イギリスの折り畳み自転車ブロンプトンに乗って西阿波を散策しました。ブロンプトンはひとつひとつが手作りだけあってとてもしっかり&手軽に扱えたおかげで、狭い路地や車の入れない河川敷の細い道も通ることができ、春の空気や香りを感じながら楽しく過ごせました。景色も綺麗で数時間があっと言う間で驚きです。ありがとうございました。

こんなに長距離を自転車で走ったのは久しぶりでしたが、気候も良く気持ち良かったです! 徳島に住んでいるのに初めて行くスポットもあり、勉強にもなりました(^^) また参加したいです♪

リモートワークで1週間、滞在していたADLIVから徳島県西部、西阿波の自然やうだつの旧市街を高級折りたたみ自転車BROMPTON(ブロンプトン)で駆け抜けるサイクルツアー。 ブロンプトンは、変速ギア付で初心者でも走りやすく、走り疲れたら電車や車に折りたたんで持ち込むこともできてとても便利。 吉野川沿いを風や匂いを感じながら肌で感じられ、車や徒歩とは違った爽快感が心地よかった。
