What you'll do

Adjust your seat post and get set for a whirlwind cycling tour through the local neighbourhoods of Tokyo on a classic 'steel' road bike, handcrafted by a Japanese master frame-builder. Sought by collectors and bicycle connoisseurs throughout the globe, nothing compares to gracing the streets on the saddle of a vintage chromoly bike that's been meticulously crafted with Japanese precision and beauty. Cycle in style on a rotating lineup of classic road and track bike frames from the revered Japanese bicycle workshops of Zunow, 3Rensho, Nagasawa, Toei, Ganwell, Kalavinka, Nakagawa, Cherubim and company. Backstreets, sidewalks and riverside cycling trails; this 20 km+ Tokyo vintage bike tour will provide it all as we ride the eclectic Tokyo wards of Nakano, Suginami, Musashino, and Mitaka on the inner west side of this bustling city. NOTES: This Tokyo cycling tour has been tailored as an unadulterated road bike ride. Formulaic sightseeing and historical commentary is not on the itinerary. Cruiser / city bikes can be provided for riders who'd prefer to pedal in comfort. For a more immersive and social ride, check out my popular offering: ‘Tokyo West-Side Cycling & Food Jaunt’ and the 750+ testimonials from happy guests. *For dates and times not published or for private and family Tokyo bike tours, feel free to say hello and I'll do my best to accommodate your requirements.*
