Our new touring bikes have had rave reviews. They have been successfully ridden all over Australia, covering hundreds or even thousands of kilometres without even a flat tyre. Thanks to everyone who has sent us their photo's - they give all of us a real buzz and we can never have too many.

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.

We had a very enjoyable trip and it was made more memorable by people like yourselves (Dave, Jan and Liam) who showed us the true Aussie spirit. The Bicycle ride down the Swan River was a triple A+. We will remember Perth for that.

Well I'm back home, but I came back with fantastic memories pictures and video of my holiday. Thankyou for your help, hiring that bike was one of the best aspects of my Australian trip. I saw so much more than hiring a car or using buses: I took over 1300 pictures many from the bike.
My favorite ride was around Rottnest, stopping at several completely deserted beaches, but to be honest I enjoyed all my rides, even a couple in the rain. I'm fairly certain I will be coming back in the next couple of years but this time for longer and even more cycling as there were other places I would have liked to have gone to, for example the upper Swan Valley.

I am not a resident of Perth but do enjoy my periodic visits. One of the many attractions for me is the excellent cycling facilities around the city which enables me to explore the sights and scenes of Perth, particularly along the Swan River; which is where 'About Bike Hire' comes in.
I came across 'About Bike Hire' quite by chance during a previous visit and have used them ever since. They really are an excellent company to deal with; the have a large selection of bikes to choose from, all in excellent condition and reasonably priced. Geoff and his team are friendly and helpful, with suggestions and ideas for bike rides if needed whether you are an experienced rider or merely a novice.
All in all, dealing with 'About Bike Hire' is a very satisfying experience and one I can strongly recommend. They have earned and deserve the success they have had to date and I wish them continuing success in the future.
