Characteristics of Etajima Rental Cycle

There are a wide variety of vehicles, such as cross bikes, mini bellos, and electric assists.

You can choose a bike that suits your purpose, including cross bikes, mini-velos, and electric assist bikes. Especially for sports bicycles such as cross bikes and mini-velo, which is a sign of fashion,I would like people to experience even those who say "I've never got a ride, but what kind of bike?"
 Cross bikes are currently located in the Koyo Port and the Furusato Koryuukan.
Mini-Velo is currently located in Koyo Port, Furusato Kouryuukan ,and Nakamachi Port.


It is OK even if it returns to a place different from the departure place!

The so-called "ride-off" to return at the rental cycle reception place different from the place where you left is also Ok. However, in this case, the guarantee fee received in advance can not be returned. Please note.


The electrically assisted bicycle is safe even if the battery runs out on the way!

In the case of an electrically assisted bicycle, the battery may run out halfway. In this case, you can replace the battery at a rental location near you, or contact the Etajima City Tourist Association (Tel: 0823-42-4871) to have the battery replaced to the nearest location. In this case, please note that it takes a waiting time.
The contact information is described on the "rental cycle No card" attached near the handle.


There is a cycling advisor

A former cycling instructor from JCA (Japan Cycling Association) will assist you on your bike trip. Please contact us by all means.


Request for customers
In addition to the case where the guarantee fee can not be refunded, compensation may be applied separately for items caused by the customer's negligence such as loss of keys, and body failures due to falls. Thank you for your understanding.
In addition, we do not accept such a use because two-seater riding with children on the back platform is prohibited by the Road Traffic Act. Please acknowledge it.

※ With the guarantee fee
The guarantee fee will be 1,000 yen once for all bicycle models. The guarantee fee can be refunded by returning it to the place where you borrowed the bicycle.

★ Other notes
1. Etajima city is generally flat, but please understand that there are ups and downs as it goes round.  
2. Please note that electric assisted bicycles differ from city cycles in their handling.
Before starting, electric assist switch on the left side of the steering hundle. The switch does not turn on when the pedal is depressed.
2 There is also a light switch on the motorized switch. If you run with this on, the battery will drain faster. It is recommended to turn off lightly. (Let it light in the tunnel.)
(3) The electric assist is about 24 km / h and the electric assist is turned off according to the provisions of the Japanese Road Traffic Act.  
3. Every bicycle has a gearbox. The transmission may be difficult to shift with the pedal pressed. In this case, go to the pedal loosening the force will make it easier to shift.
