We had such a good time with our first experience of electric bikes. Ian was a wonderful host and Hobart Bike Hire was on the same dock as our ship. We rode out to MONA in the morning and then left the bikes with Ian while we went back to the ship for lunch. Picked them up again for an afternoon ride out the other direction. Electric bikes are a kick and Hobart has great bike trails. Thank you Ian for a wonderful experience!

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your lovely review, and to all the others who have gone before, my excuse is I have only recently found how to get into the owners side of Trip Advisor.

But thank you guys, and to the others who have made the effort to do a review.

Regards Ian.

My wife and I had a great time riding Ian's electric bikes. These were our first time doing this and the charge seemed to last fairly long. It was a great way to tour Hobart.

When my sister (who loves the outdoors, but isn't into tours) came to visit me, here in Hobart, I had to rack my brain for things to do. I decided on hiring bikes as the weather was warmer than usual and picked this business because of the great reviews. We absolutely loved the electric bikes. We zoomed off towards MONA and back. We even got to experience a puncture, but Ian was there to swap us a replacement bike so quickly that it didn't interfere with our travel plans at all. I definitely recommend this to everyone.

We hired the electric bikes and had the most amazing ride of about 40 klms. We turned off the electric back up when we wanted so definitely got exercise out of it but it made it so much more enjoyable without the full on effort of riding. The track was amazing and very easy to manoeuvre even for a novice rider.

All in all a great experience

Ian's a delight to deal with and is very keen for you to enjoy Hobart - and what a great way to do that with an electric bike.

Our group rode out to MONA along the dedicated bike track - fantastic. The bikes were brilliant (you hardly have to pedal) and the track just perfect.

A great way to see Hobart and a terrific service provided. Well worth a try.
