“View from North Head is worth the ride”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We caught the ferry over from Circular Quay to Manly Beach pretty much on a whim after walking up the Harbor Bridge Pylon. Ferry ride was a great way to see the harbor.Manly bike hire is just across the intersection from the ferry terminal, so we walked over and rented bikes (we did not have reservations...No problem apparently). The blues, whites and greens of the Tasman Sea from North Head are stunning, and easily worth the climb up to the point. And it was pretty much deserted also. A multi-speed road bike is definitely the best choice. Explored some more of Manly, had a couple beers and dinner, and caught the ferry back to see the harbor lights after dark. A good day!

“Rent a bike and enjoy!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

In front of the ferry terminal, go and rent a bike at Manly Bike Tours. Bike are in very good shape, helmet and locker provided, map offered is helpful.
Nice service by the crew. Take the 2 hours Hybrid bike, which will be enough to go to North Head, enjoy the view, have time for a cappuccino in front of the Sydney bay and enjoy the return (downhill!) to Manly.
Then, discover the city, enjoy the beaches. Two hours for 28 dollars.
Good value for the money. and this is healthly!
What else?

“Nice Way to Explore Manly Beach”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I would recommend getting the multi-speed to fully explore the place. Staff was friendly and their equipment are well-maintained. When I'm back, I'd definitely return for their business. I'd suggest for adding tandem bikes to their line-up for the flat beachwalk areas.

Dear doncommando,

Thanks for the review! The hybrids (multi-speeds) are definitely the best for a wide scope of exploring ability. All of our tandem bikes must have been out and hired when you came because we do have four beauties, great challenges for anyone looking to be especially adventurous!

Regards,

Kirby

“Great service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Really enjoyed the seamless service; stored my bag in a conveniently provided locker while out on the bike; was given a map and a helmet without even having to ask. Highly recommended!
