FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What do I need to bring?

Just wear sporty clothing, bring money to pay for the tour, and some extra money (¥1500 or so) for buying drinks and food along the way.

Do I have to make a reservation?

Yes. Rides only go when there are enough riders (minimum 2), and limited it to 8 riders per a tour. It is suggested to make reservations at least two days in advance.

What if it is bad weather?

If the forecast calls for rain or bad weather, the tour will be canceled. You'll receive an email to let you know about 9pm the night before the tour.

Can I pay by Credit Card?

No, sorry only Japanese yen is accepted. If needed we can stop at a Citibank along the way.

Do I have to be in really good shape?

No - but you should be ready for a little exercise. There are a few hills (Tokyo is hilly!), but the course is fun and not too difficult. If you are a decent bike rider it shouldn't be a problem. All riders, however, should be able to ride a bike - none of the courses are for beginners!

On the 6 hour tour I see we stop at the Tokyo Tower, do we go up to a viewing platform?

No, we just stop for photos, take a short break and look at it from the ground.

Are children okay to come on the tour?

Children may only join if its a private tour with their family. There are only a few bikes for children however. Contact for details.

Is it possible to arrange a tour starting at an earlier or later time?

Some areas on the routes are best visited in the morning, so the 9am start time is best - but there is some flexibility. Contact for more details.

Is it possible to arrange for a group larger than 8 people?

Yes! As long as everyone is from one group, its possible! Contact for details.

What is there to eat for lunch?

•On the CENTRAL CITY and CENTRAL CULTURE rides there is a 20 minute stop in Harajuku/Takeshita-dori, where one can get a crepe or get something from a convenience store, McD's, etc.
•On the TOUR DE TOKYO ride there is the stop at Takeshita-dori street for crepes, and later a short stop at Tokyo Tower where food is available.
•On the TOKYO BAY ride, there is an hour plus long stop in Odaiba and riders can have lunch at one of the restaurants over looking the bay.

Is it possible to arrange for a private tour?

It's possible - but only for groups of 4 or more - and it could depend on if other riders want to go.

Is insurance included?
