Long Term Rides

Our bikes are frequently hired for lengthy periods and have successfully ridden to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Exmouth and many other regions that are mere hundreds of kilometres from our location.

Here are some of the more travelled routes:


  • Perth to Albany 

The scenic cycle route to Albany covers 827 kms of some of Western Australia's finest sights Boranup 2and attractions.

Bike West has provided a basic map and About Bike Hire staff can provide plenty of information.


  • Rottnest Island

A Cycling paradise!

The quality bikes at About Bike Hire give you an option to hiring on Rottnest island. Our bikes can be taken on the Ferries for a modest charge. A Hybrid bike is suitable for most areas and can provide all the transportation you need for a stay on the island.
