Bridgestone Cycle Showroom: Bike Forum Aoyama
Try Your Hand at Riding 17 of the Latest Sports Bicycles at the Special
[Sports Bicycle "As Much As You Can Ride"] Exhibition and Test Ride Event
Bridgestone Cycle Co., Ltd. (President: Yuji Takeuchi) will host the special [Sports Bicycle "As Much As You Can Ride"] exhibition and test ride event at the Bike Forum Aoyama (Jingu-Mae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) from May 24.

When it comes to actually purchasing a sports bicycle, many customers have trouble knowing which type to purchase out of the wide variety of models available in the mountain bike, road bike and cross bike categories. We have also heard that many people have a desire to test-ride the bicycles before finally deciding on the one to purchase. We therefore decided to host this exhibition and test ride event so that potential customers could try out the most recent sports bicycles and actually experience first-hand which one suits them best. The scale of this event is unprecedented, with a total of seventeen bikes available for test rides and a full line-up of sixteen bicycles on display. In addition to this, all visitors who test ride the bicycles will be presented with gifts of original aluminum drinking flasks adorned with the X2 TOKYO logo and cycling maps showing courses recommended by the Bike Forum Aoyama.
