Broadcast on July 31, 2020 Available until July 31, 2023

JR East's cycle train, which stopped running due to the coronavirus pandemic, resumed operation from July. B.B.BASE (Boso Bicycle Base) began service in 2018. Noticing an increase in cyclists, JR East's Chiba branch decided to develop a "wheel-on wheel-off" cyclist-friendly train, with the goal of becoming the base for cyclists around the Boso Peninsula. Join us as we take a closer look at Japan's first dedicated cycle train, as well as the history of bicycles and trains in Japan with special guest Michael Rice from "CYCLE AROUND JAPAN."
