What you'll do
Adjust your seat post and get set for a whirlwind ride through the local neighbourhoods of Tokyo on a 'steel' bicycle, handcrafted by a Japanese master frame builder. Sort by collectors and bicycle enthusiasts throughout the globe, nothing compares to gracing the streets aboard a performance chromoly road bike that's been meticulously crafted with Japanese precision and beauty. Cycle in style on a rotating lineup of road frames from the revered Japanese workshops of Zunow, 3Rensho, Nagasawa, Toei, Ganwell, Kalavinka, Nakagawa, Cherubim and company. Backstreets, sidewalks and riverside bike paths; we'll navigate them all as we cycle through the eclectic Tokyo wards of Suginami, Nakano, Musashino and Mitaka on the inner west side of this bustling city. NOTES: 1. This experience has been tailored as an unadulterated road bike ride through the backstreets of Tokyo. Formulaic sightseeing stops and historical commentary are not on the itinerary. 2. Cruiser / city bikes can be requested for riders who would prefer to pedal the streets in comfort!

Where you'll be
We'll take a 10 minute walk through my neighbourhood of Koenji to collect our bikes and set off to cycle the streets of West Tokyo. This area of town presents an honest insight into the local infrastructure and everyday life in Tokyo. Tight backstreets, crowded sidewalks, leafy bike trails, areas of industry and urban decay; our course will provide it all.
