Touring by bike gives you the agility to explore tucked-away sites, combined with the speed to cover more ground than walking. Take your pick of two different starting points, Melbourne city center or port, and set out on a 4.5-hour excursion. After meeting your guide, you’ll be fitted for a high-quality bike, helmet and safety vest. Take a practice spin around a quiet area before hitting the road. Melbourne is a very bike-friendly city with many well-marked bike paths; however, you may also ride on the street at times. Let your guide know your interests as they can customize the tour to suit the groups desires.
