A new service that provides a marketing base for sports bike manufacturers. Direct approach to Tama Sai cyclists

Distribution date: September 8, 2022

We have launched a new service that provides bicycle rental stores as marketing bases for sports bike manufacturers. We provide a communication space between manufacturers and fans that approaches cyclists in a convenient location 30 seconds from the Tamagawa Cycling Road.

RIDEAWAY Nakanojima Home, a Tamagawa bicycle rental facility operated by Symmetric Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Kazutoshi Sakata) in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, is a marketing base for sports bike manufacturers. We have started a "road bike test ride base service" where you can use our stores. Because our store is close to the Tamagawa Cycling Road and the Minami-Tama Ridge Main Road, which is popular with cyclists, we are able to directly communicate the manufacturer's appeal to cyclists.

The Tama River Cycling Road is one of the most popular cycling roads in western Tokyo, stretching a total distance of 50 km and used by cyclists for daily cycling and training.

The bicycle rental "RIDEAWAY Nakanojima Home" is located 25 km from the mouth of the Tama River, and is in a good location where many cyclists pass through. There are traffic lights and ramps, so you can safely access the cycling path from the store without having to make any detours.

Additionally, the Minami-Tama Ridge Main Road, which was used for the cycling competitions at the Tokyo Olympics, is 3km away, providing quick access to courses popular with cyclists.

Since it is easy for cyclists who use popular cycling courses to stop by on a daily basis, it is possible to directly deliver the appeal of the manufacturer to cyclists.
