I always wanted to pay a visit to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Memorial Park, and I was so fortunate to get this occasion in April of this year. As I was traveling with my bike, I took the occasion to make a short ride through the city and discover Hiroshima on the bike. Surprisingly many well-connected bike lanes make it easy and safe to ride in this Japanese city. Especially the rides along the river on a true bike path are stunning, with many cherry trees in full blossom. Overall there is a lot of green in the city, and car drivers actually pay attention to cyclists. I would highly recommend you to visit the Peace Memorial Park and the Peace Museum after your ride.
