Small bike tour size - normally 8 person maximum. If you want an experience... much more than your average tour you've come to the right place. we have great bikes, even greater guides… it’s friendly and fun.
We have a fleet of bikes, mostly 21-speed 700c hybrids with light aluminium frames and big wheels for easy city riding. We have men's and women's "step-through" styles to choose from.
We meet at 16 Waterview Walk in the Melbourne Docklands at 9.50am and set out around 10am. The ride usually concludes around 2-2.30pm but we can sometimes run overtime... depending on numbers participating, weather, varying fitness levels, riding speed etc. so please allow for this in planning your day.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your tour please call +61 417 339 203 at least 24 hours before the tour starts. Please feel free to call that number right up to 9am on the day if you have any concerns about the weather forecast or anything else.
Our famous Best of Melbourne By Bike Tour starts from our shop at 16 Waterview Walk in the Melbourne Docklands. Just take to #11 or #48 free tram up Collins at to stop D16 (Harbour Esplanade) and we’re just a two-minute walk north of there towards Marvel Stadium.
Where possible we will ride on bike paths, but some road riding is required to get to key highlights like groovy Fitzroy, Little Italy and the Queen Victoria Market. We have 20 years of experience in keeping people safe. We'll ask you to nominate your confidence level at the outset, so we can offer extra help to those who need it. A comprehensive safety talk is given before each tour. Hi-vis vests are available for extra visibility/safety and we personally fit bikes and helmets for your protection.
We ride in a special formation proven to keep people safe.
Your tour leader could be Geoff, Peter, Paul, Craig, Phillip, Rose, David, Leanne or Murray. We are all trained, passionate guides. In our other lives we are marketers, ex-principals, teachers, retailers, photographers, journalists, town planners and more.
Just bring yourself and a phone/camera. Wear comfortable cycling clothes... and layers are a good idea in Melbourne, as the weather can change quickly and often at certain times of the year!
Be prepared for Melbourne's famous "four seasons in one day."
