Rail Mountain Bike - Gattan Go!!
レールマウンテンバイク ガッタンゴー（Rail Mountain Bike - Gattan Go）
Hop on a specialty mountain bike and glide along the rails of abandoned train tracks
What makes these bikes special is less the bikes themselves, and more the metal frame (and their guided rollers) that they are fixed to. The back tire sits directly on the rail, and all you need to do to get through this 3-kilometer long course safely is to keep peddling—there's no fear of losing your way or falling from the tracks. It operates 5 - 8 times a day, with one trip taking roughly one and a half hours.
Some bikes are hybrids that use electricity to help push you along and there are attachable benches and child seats as well, making Gattan Go!! the perfect destination for groups of any kind, including couples and families.
The combination of the scenery of the great outdoors and the vibrations and sounds of the rails you ride along make this a fun and unique experience.
