Dolphin Link

by Geoff 22. August 2011 23:44

Dolphins are often seen in the Swan River behind About Bike Hire. Kayak and bike hirers alike are encouraged to report sightings to Dolphin Watch. This will assist the River Guardians program to protect this most beautiful Perth resident. Sightings of the new dolphin calf born just 3 weeks ago would be particularly important.

Another Award!

by Geoff 22. April 2011 08:22

About Bike Hire is proud to be the recipient of the 2011 Disability Services Commission Affiliate of the Year award. This was presented by the Honourable Minister for Mental Health, Helen Morton in a ceremony attended by about 100 of our valued customers and the Easter Bunny!

We have worked hard for nearly 20 years to provide a service to customers that have a disability and it is gratifying to receive recognition in this way.   

This follows our acceptance of the 2010 WA Disabled Sports Association Award. This was a fine way to recognise the support we have always given to disabled clients and their carers. The quadcycles in particular give many the opportunity to get some exercise whilst enjoying the fabulous Perth bike paths.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to cycle on the renowned Munda Biddi Trail from Perth to Nannup?

Esther from Byron Bay has prepared a beaut Blog which she has generously shared with us.

The photo's are stunning and her experiences working in the tourism industry have resulted in an easy-to-read Blog that makes you feel every bump on the Trail, as well as sampling the great experiences to be had. Our Giant Yukon bikes and BOB trailers have once again proved to be up to the challenge!

Visiting Musicians get their bikes at special prices

by Geoff 23. November 2010 02:18

About Bike Hire has long given discounted hires to people it considers particularly important. As a business largely staffed and managed by musicians, we are particularly keen to support visiting artists and musicians.

Several of our staff members have ultimately become renowned musicians themselves and more are in the pipeline! As scary as it may seem, at one time we boasted 3 trumpets, 1 vocalist, 1 cellist, 1 pianist and 2 guitarists amongst just 9 staff. 

During our recent history, members of the Berlin Philharmonic, Westside Story orchestra and many renowned musicians from around the world have enjoyed getting around on our bikes and kayaks. We are pleased to be able to support our musical peers and watch them perform too.
