No. We love riding our bikes, and think that a great holiday means not needing to be shuttled around in a van, bus, or train. So, from the moment you start your tour, you can stay on bikes and enjoy the fresh outdoors. All of our routes are carefully designed to take you from start to finish on safe and enjoyable roads for bicycles. While guests always have the option to get a lift in Bike Tour Japan’s support and gear vehicle on a guided tour, it is never required.
*The one exception to this is the Tour of the Setouchi Sea where we take a handful of ferries throughout the trip. Each ferry has both indoor and outdoor covered seating and standing room with plenty of space to stay socially distant.
