A number of bicycle hire shops are congregated near the Kyoto Station area close to the APA Hotel Ekimae and the Rihga Royal Hotel including Miyakoshiki Fuune, where visitors can rent battery-assisted bicycles.
Right behind the APA Hotel Ekimae to the west of Kyoto Station is the reliable Kyoto Cycle Tour Project, where you can rent a variety of bicycle types as well as rain wear and helmets.
Kyoto Cycle Tour Project has other outlets near Kinkakuji, Nishiki-kita (at the Hotel Co-op Inn) and Fushimi (at Urban Hotel).
