Melbourne’s only personalised, private bike tour is the most exciting way to explore this unique city. Roll through leafy neighbourhoods and urban backstreets. Hear about local icons and curious characters. Cruise along the river bank and by the bay. Ride the Grand Prix Circuit, culture and sporting precincts, the wind in your hair, the scents and sights of the city flying by.
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the Federation Square bike shop. Be fitted with a well-maintained, commuter bike and helmet designed for urban riding.
Share a few points about your riding experience and interests with your Localing host to help make the experience personal.
Choose a gritty neighbourhood/city-centric adventure north of the river or head to Melbourne’s leafy southern ‘burbs for bayside culture and class… or ride fast and get a taste of both.
Ride the Yarra River bank, the city’s cultural divide for a little orientation and some insight into local indigenous culture.
Roll past a few cultural icons like The MCG, The Arts Centre or Shrine of Remembrance.
Visit a vibrant local neighbourhood for some coffee and pastries at a local institution. Chat to the owner and hear a few stories about the area’s unique culture and history.
Ride through the backstreets to see how locals live, admire a few unusual homes and buildings and some stunning street art.
Enjoy a quick lunch at a neighbourhood cafe or slow down over first-rate fine dining. Get to know your host better, discuss local culture and how best to spend your time in Melbourne.
Embrace the chaos of Melbourne’s exciting downtown area or enjoy the sunshine and palm trees on the waterfront. Meet Melburnians in galleries, boutiques and studios.
Your Localing host will have you back at your hotel by 4 pm (start and finish times can be varied to suit your needs).
