Touring Bike Rental
Touring Japan on touring bikes is a beautiful way to see the country. We use a sturdy and smooth Trek bike which can be loaded up with Ortlieb panniers to give you the room you need to store your gear.
Just send us your heights, desired cycling dates and whether you will also need panniers. Some cyclists bring their own panniers which is also completely fine, most panniers will fit on our racks without any problems.
Some things included...
Our bikes are equipped with rear racks so you can load up your own panniers or rent them from us.
Pucture Proof Tubes
Our bikes come with puncture proof tubes so you can spend more time cycling and less time repairing.
All bikes come with a lock so you can secure your wheels while you take a much-needed pit stop.
Front & Rear Lights
We have front and rear lights to help you be as visible and as safe as possible while on the road.
What People Love about Globalwheels
Peter and Rosa
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"
Adrien, Quynh, Mickaël and Quentin
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."
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!"
