Welcome to another one of Freddy’s favorite bike rides around Melbourne. Now that you have made the great decision to hire a bike from Freddy’s bike tours Melbourne we will give you a brief overview of a great ride that tales you out of the city of Melbourne and along the Yarra river.
Like most of our Melbourne bike tour suggestions when you hire a bike we start a Federation square. After Freddy’s team has located you and got you set up on your bike (we suggest taking one of our new mountain bikes we now have in stock) you are ready to head away from the city along the river.
The first 5 Kim’s of the trip you will still be in the city but do not worry the bike ride gets better and better the further from the city you get. Along the way you will get to stop you Melbourne city trail bike ride under a bridge in Richmond to see the most unexpected rock climbing wall in Melbourne.
Now that you are back on your bikes you will begin to get out of the city of Melbourne and fell like you are riding your bike in the real Australia with beautiful river banks covered in gum trees. After taking the Melbourne city bike trail for about 15km from Federation square you will arrive at the grand Abbotsford convent, here we suggest you put you hire bikes down for half an hour and have some great lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in Melbourne “lentil as anything” this is a great place with great food where you are expected to pay what you can afford (we suggest between $10 and $15).
Now that you have been re energized with some delicious vegetarian food you are ready to follow the bike path back around the top of Melbourne city towards the hip and happening suburb of Brunswick. You will have been on you Melbourne hire bikes for about 30kms now and visited the best that we have to offer on the north side of the city. If you are feeling like a little relax before you return the bikes to Freddy’s bike tours pull your bikes into the Brunswick green hotel on Sydney road for a great beer garden to watch the evening go past.
We hope you have a great bike ride in Melbourne if you have any questions about what, when are how to ride in Melbourne contact contact Freddy through Facebook, twitter or carrier pidgin and he will get back to you with some other great ideas.
