What People Love about Globalwheels

Great service, great bikes, great fun!!!

​We rented two bikes from Globalwheels and couldn't have been happier. The bikes were great and came with everything we could have possibly needed (tools, racks, bags, etc). We would definitely use the company again and we highly recommend Globalwheels"

Peter and Rosa

Friendly, flexible, top quality bike rental

Gareth & Ian have been super friendly and extremely helpful when we organised our 8 days bike trip around Osaka. They have been very flexible to accommodate all our requests, and have rented us top notch road bikes very well maintained."

Adrien, Quynh, Mickaël and Quentin

Experienced road bike rental service with great support! 
I rented a bike to ride across Shikoku and the Shimanami Kaido. One of the best rides of my life! I tried 4 bike shops in Osaka but no one was able to accommodate until I contacted Globalwheels. They were ready with a Specialized Allez and all the necessary equipment for my trip!"
