B-Ike is one of pioneers to offer E-bike (Electric assist bicycle) trekking tour of scenic mountainous roads in Japanese nature.  E-bike trekking is much easier and safer than normal trekking by foot.  While you slowly keep on pedaling, you can enjoy viewing magnificent scenery of Japanese mountain area. Do not worry about running of battery because B-Ike’s E-bike has high performance battery capable to climb up long and high mountainous roads for a day tour.  On downhill, the E-bike speed can be easily kept low by advanced regenerative brake of its front wheel, which should assure your safety tour.
