Hired a standard bike and an electric bike for the day and found the team friendly and helpful. In and out quick and away with our helmets and maps. Would recommend and had a great day out on the self guided routes.

We read all the great reviews before arriving in Hobart and the Hobart Bike Shop lived up to all of them. There was a choice of current well maintained bicycles and my ladies Avanti with basket to hold our back pack was ideal. We rode to Mona and then on the way back detoured over the Tasman bridge to Bellerive riding on dedicated bikeways most of the way. It was a great way to see some of the different parts of Hobart. We will be back! Thanks guys.

My family of 4 (kids are 5 and 7) love our family bike rides. So when I was planning our Tasmanian holiday, high up the list was finding somewhere to hire bikes for all of us.

Thankfully there's Hobart Bike Hire and the very friendly and helpful Ian.

We were in and out of the shop within 5 minutes and on our way with bikes and helmets that fit just right. We even got a couple of locks which came in handy for when we stopped for a drink by the water.

The plan was to ride to the Botanical Gardens and then over the bridge and along the water on the north side, but the wind and the complaining from our youngest changed our course. It still worked out nicely though - we made it to the top of the bridge and then crusied back in, using the extra time to explore the city which we pretty much had to ourselves as it was late on Sunday afternoon.

Ian (the owner I think) suggested we bike ride to Mona as a family. He was so helpful with working out which bikes would be best for all of us - Mum, Dad and three kids, 9, 7 and 5. Unfort there was a slight bike problem that we couldn’t fix - we called Ian mid bike ride and he came out straight away and fixed the problem. Super service. Would def do again and highly recommend.

We were on a cruise with a Port call in Hobart. We wanted to rent a motorcycle for a day, and a little research turned up Hobart Bike Hire. I called Ian and reserved a Suzuki V-Strom for the next day. We were a bit early, but Ian was there and got us outfitted with helmets, jackets and a GPS. We headed for Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula, after a stop at Bonarong Wildlife Sanctuary to visit the Kangaroos and Koalas. Ian had programmed the GPS with an excellent route both going and returning. The return route took us over Grasstree Hill, with lots of traffic-free twisties. We enjoyed light traffic roads and a very scenic ride. If you are in Hobart and the urge to ride a motorcycle strikes you, I can't recommend Hobart Bike Hire highly enough. Ian has several V-Stroms, a couple BMWs and an assortment of other bikes. Five star operation.
