Daily departures from Rentabike @ Federation Square... on the riverbank level near the Riverland Bar.

We have a maximum of 8 riders on our daily city tour, but run private tours for bigger groups on request.
We have a bike hire shop at Federation Square (where you can leave your stuff free of charge) and our own fleet of 60 light hybrid 21-speed  bikes in a variety of sizes. 
We also have baby seats, children's bikes, tagalongs, tandems.

Our clients include Qantas and Melbourne's top private and public schools as well as Visit Victoria and we have featured in newspapers and magazines worldwide for 18 years, as well as on TV's Great Outdoors, Coxy's Big Break, Postcards and Getaway.

Generally we don't recommend that children under 12 years of age ride on their own, as the tour does involve some city riding, but we leave that to the discretion of parents who best know their kids, and their experience and capabilities. 

We have had children complete the tour on their own bikes, tagalongs, the back of tandems, in buggies – even in baby seats. Feel free to contact Murray on 0417 339 203 or if you have any questions.
