Bicycle tours in the great outdoors!

Myoko City started a demonstration experiment on the first of this month to rent “e-bikes,” electrically power assisted bicycles, to tourists visiting Myoko Kogen in Myoko City, Niigata Prefecture, so that they can enjoy a tour of the area.

The e-bike is equipped with a motor that allows the rider to ride comfortably on hills with just a light pedal stroke.

Still0801_00001There are 25 bicycles of three types, including a sports type and a city bicycle type for use by children.

There are two “cycle ports” where bicycles can be rented: the Myoko Plateau Kogen Information Center and MYOUKO BASE CAMP. In the future, they will also be set up at the Myoko Plateau Sky Cable boarding area and the Akakura Information Center.

Everything from reservation to payment is done using the “Hello Cycle” smartphone application. Bicycles can be returned at any cycle port other than the place where they were rented.
