Very impressed by the service and quality of the road bike I hired from David. Dropped off and collected on schedule in Cottesloe with the Garmin mount, Look pedals, requested saddle type and water bottles. Worth paying a little extra for the great service.

Had a great group ride with David on one of his hire bikes. Was going to do my own thing but glad I chose to do the group ride. You can’t beat local knowledge when you’re new to the area.
