Guidelines

Please read below for using Rent-a-cycle safely and comfortably.

(When registering for the first time, present an ID such as a driver’s license, health insurance card, student ID or credit card. We will issue a membership card so that you can present it from the next time. We take out rider’s insurance and liability insurance for bodily injury. (Users need not buy insurance.)

●Inspect before riding

Check that the brakes work well, the handles are not bent, the bell rings, the tires have proper air, the chain is not too loose, the petals rotate smoothly and that the screws are tight.

A bicycle pump is at each station. In order to ride comfortably, please keep the tires with proper air pressure.
  • Usage

Observe traffic rules (Ride on the left side) and parking manners. Please respect pedestrians and others. Do not park your bikes where bicycle parking is prohibited.

  • Responsibility and insurance

We take out rider’s insurance and liability insurance for bodily injury. Bodily injury and property damage due to accidents caused by bicycle defects are insured, but please understand that we take no responsibility at all for accidents due to other causes.

  • Please return your bike within the day. Otherwise, the fare will increase each hour.
