In Tokyo, cycling to go to work is normal. However, bicycle is only used for convenience to avoid overcrowded train. How can bicycle go from a simple transportation object to become a real lifestyle? “The Urban Hub” (open bicycle repair workshop and coffee shop) located under a train station in Tokyo helps promoting the cycling itinerary located in Izu peninsula by exhibiting photography taken there and by creating a place to gather people with common interests. In Izu, five stations will promote local Japanese activities through a scenic route: “The Ashiyu” (footbath) to relax after hours of cycling, “The Observatory” to admire Mont Fuji, “The Lodge” to rest and immerse into an onsen (hot spring), “The Yatai” (food stall) to eat local sea products and “The Tea House” to take a break along the coastline. Just as the drivetrain of a bicycle, Tokyo and Izu work together and impulse each other. By bringing tourists to places they would not be able to visit without access to a car, it will renew Izu’s remote areas. The experience there will also promote cycling not just as a mode of transportation but as a more sustainable way of living back in the city.

Nice integral and conceptual idea for the bicycle imagined in a beautiful drawing rooted in local tradition.
