As a group that usually welcomes everyone to visit and enjoy cycling in Tokyo, this is an unfortunate post.
The widespread of the Corona Virus is growing in Tokyo, on the verge of overshoot.
On 7 April Prime Minister Abe proclaimed a state of emergency from 8 April to 6 May for Tokyo and the prefectures of Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka.
It is strongly suggested that visiting Tokyo be avoided.
People already in Tokyo should avoid meeting in groups and visiting places where people gather.
Please be conscious about keeping social distance in order to prevent spreading or receiving the virus. You, or the person next to you may be a virus carrier.
Many shops and facilities will be closed following the issuing of the State of Emergency.
Cycle Tokyo! will postpone all guided rides until it is deemed safe.
Your understanding is appreciated.
Riding the bike is good to keep fit during this #stayhome #staysafe time. Keep cycling around the neighborhood by yourself....NO GROUP RIDING.
Again, please stay safe and healthy, and hope we'll be able to ride together around Tokyo again !

There were more than few rental bicycle shops in Honolulu from before mainly targeted for tourists. Now Honolulu has a public bike share service called BIKI (http://gobiki.org) and local residents as well as tourists can easily and usefully use bicycles for a reasonable price. Moving around Honolulu outside of Waikiki is actualy efficient by bicycle.
Biki is very "American" by the fact that everything is taken care of with a credit card.Initial registration and requesting the rental,managing the rental time,locking/unlocking of a bike, as well as the payment(naturally) is all associated with the credit card used at registeration. At any BIKI cyce station located within Honolulu, you can drrop off or re-rent the bike using the registered credit card. The hub internal geared 3 speed bicycle equipped with front/bak lights and a simple front carrier is sturdy but heavy. All the bikes seem to be well maintenainced and is well enough to use for city use. The bikes are fitted with long seat posts to handle tall riders...something that a bike share service in the city coming up with the Olympics should refer to and take into account....thos seatposts are way too short DOCOMO-San !
It was noticable that the service is well sunk in to the comminity seeing not only the tourists but many local residents were making use of this bikeshare service.
