Experience the best of Melbourne on this fun, half-day guided bike tour hosted by Melbourne By Bike.

Can begin from city, St Kilda or at the cruise ship pier in Port Melbourne.
Become acquainted with Melbourne and its surroundings by bike, accompanied by your own personable, safety-conscious guide. With dedicated bike paths and an impressive network of on-road bike lanes, you'll discover why Melbourne has been voted one of the world's most bike-friendly cities.

The goal of this tour is to ensure you see the many facets of Melbourne life - the seaside, the eating, coffee, fashion, sports and cultural edginess of Melbourne, through the eyes of a local.

The terrain of Melbourne is generally flat, but this tour is recommended for a slightly fitter client due to the kilometres that are covered. Over 12 years of age preferred.
