Please enjoy the comfortable riding experience!
Bicycle with 24-speed transmission（Road bike）・1 unit
Road bikes have unique handles, but in reality, there are multiple positions to put your hands on, and you can take the appropriate posture depending on the situation.
Compact bicycle with 6-speed transmission・1 unit
It has a transmission, but it requires a little power because the wheel diameter is a little small.
Some people go to the seaside by this bicycle, so I think you can fully enjoy Itoshima.

Guide for Bicycle Beginners
Charm of cycling
Bicycles are different from driving by car in that you can enjoy exercising at a slow speed and using your own power.
If you find a spot that looks good on Instagram, you can stop and take pictures, or if you notice a path that seems to be a good atmosphere, you can go through it easily.
When you arrive at your destination, the refreshing feeling is exceptional!
It’s a great memory when you’re with your friends.
Let’s try cycling!
Charm of cycling in “ITOSHIMA”
The Itoshima Peninsula has many flat roads, making it ideal for beginners in cycling!
The distance from JR Chikuzen-maebaru Station which is the center of Itoshima, to the sea such as Futamigaura is about 10km, so even if you slowly ride a bicycle, you can arrive within an hour. It is a good sense of distance.
There are some roads that are narrow and require attention, but the roads where bicycles can pass have been gradually improved, and now you can basically enjoy cycling with peace of mind.
Cycling around the beautiful sea, scattered Instagram spots, and delicious Itoshima cafes and restaurants is a popular course.
Itoshima bicycle sightseeing information
Itoshima has many flat roads, so it’s easier to get to Futamigaura by the sea and the Nogita coast than you thought.
Please refer to the following information on sightseeing of Itoshima.
Please take care of yourself and enjoy the Itoshima Bicycle Rental.
