  • Expert Bike Maintenance

    maintenance before you embark on your bicycle journey,
    ensuring a smooth and comfortable riding experience.

  • Beginners Welcome!

    We want to spread the joy of cycling to beginners!
    Sport cycling for the first time can be a little intimidating.
    We will adjust the saddle position perfectly for you, and teach how to ride politely in order to give you the confidence to enjoy your ride to the fullest.

Provision for No Flat Tires

We are putting a lot of thought into avoiding flat tires, the natural enemy of a cyclist.

We utilize puncture resistant tires, layering of rim tape, and proper air pressure
adjustments to prevent flat tires so you can travel worry free.

Sometimes there is no way to avoid flat tires. To remedy this, we rent inner tubes,
tire levers, and flat tire repair kits.

Generally, beginners who wish to ride around Lake Biwa rent our bikes for 2-3 days. In addition, we have day rental plans so that customers can enjoy cycling in Hikone and Nagahama as well. Rental days are flexible depending on the customer’s cycling plan.
