I am new to your community.

First question:

How can I ride subway or JR having a bike with me.
:eek:uch:
When you ride on a train in Japan, you need to pack you bike in carrying bag. Any bag is ok for packing, but the exclusive bag called "Rinko-bukuro (輪行袋)" is most common.
See here.

Yes I usually pack my bike in a travel case with carrying strap. I think you can get a nice one online some where. I bought mine from www.nashbar.com
You bought Rinko-bukuro outside Japan?:eek:
Wow, it is very informative for me!:thumb:
Many foreign people who comes to Japan for cycle touring want where they can buy bag. I have never know where to buy outside. Thank you!
