Here’s what people say after they’ve experienced a Planet Adventure tour.
This was the first time I’d joined in a genuine cycling tour. I enjoy walking and riding bicycles mainly for the fresh air, and hadn’t really conditioned my legs much. So although I thought it might be a bit overambitious, I nonetheless started preparing on my own, and had an exhilarating ride along the Tama river.
All I’d ever ridden was a step-through grocery-getter bike, so this was my first ride on a cross bike. Experienced riders patiently taught me how to use the gear shift, and even how to get on and off the bike. And although I went at my own pace, bringing up the rear, I stayed with the tour and had a wonderfully enjoyable time.
I’ve tried two bike rentals, one a Brompton small-wheel design and also a TREK cross bike. And now that I’ve come to want a bike of my own, I’m considering what kind to buy. I love taking walks around town, and sometimes cover 20km to 30km in a day. Since I tried cycling, however, I’ll never forget how enjoyable it is to experience the way the scenery glides by at an entirely different pace.

Hi, I’m Erico. I’m light on my feet, and I love cycling. My job is planning tours, fine-tuning them, and guiding them. Feel free to bring all your questions to me!
Hi there. I’m TATS. I never did much cycling until will into adulthood. But I’m all the more into it for being a late bloomer. I lived in Nagano for four years, where I acquired a taste for mountain riding. Come with me!
Hello. I’m Waka. I respond to e-mail and keep the office running, which is to say, I tie up all the loose ends and keep things running smoothly. I even drive the support car and pick up tour members– me and my dog Buri, that is. We look forward to seeing you!
I’m Yuma. I’ve been working with bicycles for about ten years now. I have about three years’ experience in the bicycle shop, so you can ask me anything about mechanics or how to choose the bike that’s right for you. I like Showa-brand bikes made in Japan.
