“Fun way to see Hobart”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We hired electric bikes from Hobart Bike Hire and it was just fantastic.

Great way to get around. We zoomed around on the bike path, so didn't have to go in the traffic.

And the electric bikes are nothing like those awful petrol ones you see people on - they're super quiet, but so much easier to ride.

Ian was super friendly and really helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Hobart.

“Hobart Bike Hire”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

These guys are awesome!!! The bikes are really easy to ride - you can cruise along quite quickly with next to no effort.
Going down to MONA is a great way to spend the day with the bike or just take a look at the city.

“Fantastic Ride”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I havent done a Trip Advisor review before but just have to let you know that Hobart Bike Hire is awesome. We hired an electric bike for the day and had a blast. Cycled out to MONA, took a look at the city and it was all so easy.

The price was great, the service great and the bicycles were really easy to ride. Going by bike is a great way to see the city.

“Electric Bike Was Fantastic”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

My husband and I had a blast hiring 2 of their electric bikes. Totally noise free and make it really easy to ride.

It's as though you have someone giving you a huge push the whole way!

The man there (Ian) gave us some tips on where to go and we did the self guided tour out along the river on the dedicated bike path past the bridge, the Botanical Gardens and on to MONA.

We did plan on catching the ferry back, but the bikes were so easy to ride we rode back. We then rode up into Salamanca and Battery Point.

It was a great way to see the city and was about the best thing we did in Hobart.

Hello happytraveller135

I really appreciate your very kind words - the electric bikes are always a big hit with customers. We often hear of how they love cruising past serious cyclists on the bike path!

Glad you enjoyed the ride out to MONA and back. It really is a delightful ride with such a variety between the city, riding by the river and surburbia.

Thanks again and safe travelling.

Best Regards

Ian

“Motorbiking around Tasmania”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We hired our motorbike from "Moto Adventure Tasmania", and found the experience absolutely first class and a thoroughly enjoyable holiday experience. Ian who run's the business was very friendly and helpful with our holiday plans, his incite and experience proved to be invaluable (you can't beat local knowledge). We explained to him what we wanted to do (we didn't have much of an idea), he gave us his suggestions on sites to see and things to do. We'd like to say thank you very much to Ian, for a extremely satisfying and memorable holiday experience. Cheers Angelo & Nicky.
