Sakamichi Onoda is an otaku, an anime obsessive, who has just entered high school and plans to join the anime club. In middle school, Onoda did not have any friends with whom he could talk about anime, games, Akihabara, and other otaku things and is hoping he can make such friends in the anime club, but he finds out it has been disbanded. In order to reestablish the club, he tries to find 4 other people who would like to join.
Since he was a little boy, Onoda has ridden his mamachari ("City Bike" AKA "Mommy Bike" in the anime) – a bulky bicycle with a step-through frame mainly used for short rides- for casual fun, to pick up groceries, or to go to Akihabara every week to check out or buy otaku things. His fellow freshman, Shunsuke Imaizumi, a cyclist, while training, notices Onoda riding his mamachari up a steep road.
Naruko, visits Akihabara to get some Gundam plastic models for his younger brothers and he meets Onoda, who caught his attention because of the his cycling skill on the mamachari and later finds out they go to the same school. Later on, both Naruko and Imaizumi try to convince him to join the bicycle racing club.
Sohoku is a hard-working team that acts as the main school in the story. Even when members face internal conflicts, they are all determined to win. Its team members want to improve in their own ways. Their training is often brutal, and may seem like survival of the fittest, but it dramatically boosts their skills. Some events they do are team traditions, such as the first year welcome race and the 1000km training camp used to determine the Inter-High members.
Hakone Academy is a well built team that claims to be made up of six aces, with many more in reserve. Hakone Academy's cycling club is the largest in the country. As a result, the team has an incredibly difficult selection process. All the club members race against each other for the honor of wearing the team zekken at the Inter-High. Only the winners of each group (A through F) go on to participate. The groups are often divided so they will take up to 3 all arounders, up to 2 sprinters, and 2 climbers.
Kyoto Fushimi, or Kyofushi, acts as the third squad in this series and is the wild card of the group. The team was built mostly by all-arounders and has never been an exceptional team. Its training practices are never shown, but other teams say they were a lot nicer in previous years.
