Usually, you can’t cycle when it snows, that’s the reason why our rental bicycle shop is closed during winter.
However, we have a way to enjoy cycling even in the snow. It’s mountain bike. So, why don’t we play in the snow, by mountainbiking!
We don’t have so many mountain bikes for rental, but we can arrange a few ones for this event specially.

Don’t worry about biking in the snow even if you’re a beginner. Some experienced staffs will be with you.

It’s the time again that we should tell you about our winter closing.
We will close our shop during winter, from December 16th, 2019 until February 21, 2020.
Because here the north area of Shiga Prefecture will be covered with snow, at least the road will be icy, it is not good condition for biking.

We staffs are taking break during New Year’s holidays from Dec. 29, 2019 to Jan. 10, 2020.
If you have any questions about our rental bicycle service or something about cycling around Lake Biwa, please contact us via email or phone after Jan. 10th.
Making reservations is available online during our break as well but our checking/confirming and reply will be done after Jan. 10th.
Thank you for your understanding.

We will start to accept reservations on January 11st in 2020.
And we will re-open our shop and start to rent bikes on February 22, Saturday.


See you next spring! And, you know, Tokyo Olimpic 2020 will take place next summer!! Can’t wait!

We wish you all have a great and happy Christmas & winter season☆彡
Looking forward to meeting wonderful guys in 2020, too!
