Complimentary Bicycle Rental Service @ Hilton Nagoya

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 6 April 2010

 Hilton Nagoya guests can now enjoy a new complimentary bicycle rental service, part of the hotels commitment to reduce its carbon footprint by encouraging an eco-friendly and convenient way to travel around the city.

The new service follows an experiment (called Mei Chari) conducted by Nagoya City in 2009, that offered registered members complimentary use of bicycles in the city. Its overwhelming success not only confirmed the pleasures of cycling but also showed a growing acceptance of bicycles as an effective eco-friendly way to respond to global environmental issues.

Hilton Nagoya is working closely with The Forum for citizens with bicycles, a non-profit-organization, to encourage staying guests to take advantage of the hotels fleet of meticulously maintained Corratec and Raleigh bicycles.

Hilton Nagoya offers the perfect base to enjoy the various cycling-friendly events scheduled throughout 2010 in the city of Nagoya - from the Conference of the Parties Convention on Biological Diversity (COP10) to the acclaimed international artistic festival, Aichi Triennale both sure to attract many environmentally-conscious travelers to Nagoya and the ideal opportunity for Hilton Nagoya to encourage cycling as a way to enjoy the cityscape and local culture. Bicycles offer the ideal way to see Nagoya, especially its tiny lanes and pedestrian areas that are difficult to reach by car or bus.

We are strongly committed to addressing environmental issues and promoting a healthy lifestyle, said Hilton Nagoya General Manager Jamie Mead. Using one of our complimentary bicycles is not only a smart choice for convenient transport and reducing carbon dioxide emissions, but will also add great value to exploring this beautiful city. Our staff is also on hand with up-to-date city maps and advice on the best cycling routes to fully enjoy your stay with us.

There is a maximum of 4 hours per rent per person, reservations are required before use and a contract needs to be signed before using the bicycle. Other terms and conditions may apply.
