What is Trekkling?
The name of the shop, ‘Trekking’, is a word coined by combining trekking and cycling.
Our theme is to enjoy the nature of Okutama on bicycle and on foot!
Appealing points of Trekkling
A wide range of bicycle types and sizes!
We have a total of 72 e-bikes, road bikes, gravel roads, hybrid bikes and mountain bikes.
All Trekking guides are JCTA-certified cycling guides!
The Japan Cycling Tourism Association is an organisation working with Cycle UK that provides training and certification in tourism for cycling. Our guides are travel specialists who know the local attractions inside out! They can take you to places of interest that are not listed in the guidebooks, or take you to places you might feel uneasy about on your own. Trekking’s cycling guides produce “small journeys” that bring you into contact with the nature, culture and lifestyle of the region. (2 Japanese guides and 1 British guide).
Trekking’s original cycling maps allow you to visit places that are not on the guide maps!
You will receive an original cycling map produced at our shop, and our staff will give you instructions before you set off based on the map, including an explanation of the route, information on the sights, gourmet information, and hidden gems, so you won’t get lost or find yourself wondering where to go, as is often the case in travel destinations!
Bicycle beginners can also feel at ease!
If you’ve never ridden an e-bike before or if you’ve never ridden a hybrid bike before, there’s no need to worry. Our staff will give you instructions.
Free cycling helmet!
Cycling helmets are provided free of charge for your safety and security. We also offer the option of a state-of-the-art helmet with a built-in intercom (which allows up to four people to talk at the same time).
