Excellent way to see the city - Freddy was engaging and interesting, with a range of historic and modern information to share (and a beautiful man!) Bikes were easy to ride and comfortable, and Melbourne was surprisingly easy to get by around. Would thoroughly recommend!

Highly recommend this bike hire shop. Tucked away and a short walk from the tram loop and very reasonable priced. Freddie was so helpful and provided options for routes and I hired a solid E Bike for 3 hours. I went down to St Kilda and Brighton clocking up 30kn on the excellent network of bike lanes. Great afternoon and thanks again to Freddie who made it all so easy.

We (two adults and a teen) spontaneously decided to rent bikes and do the Capital City Trail on a Saturday mid-morning. We walked into Blue Tounge Bikes and James expertly supplied us with 3 suitable mountain bikes and maps for our phones. The bikes are definitely the best quality bikes I have ever rented! They were new Meridas with special easy to use locks and phone holders (for those of us that are not used to navigating Melbourne). The Capital City Trail was amazing. Beautiful, easy to ride and safe for families as it is all off road bike paths. There are lots of food stops along the way. It was handy to have a phone app to help guide us, as a couple of times the path wasn’t so well marked. We had a great day! Thanks James for the great equipment and good local advice.

Came across this place after finding arriving at another store to it being closed. Cheap pricing and loads of variety to choose from. Did originally want an electric bike, but the batteries weren't charged. Road bike did me good as a second best. So, only advice would be to book ahead!

Did bike tour with my family on a trip to Melbourne. It was great, much more fun and educational than we expected. Freddy was exceptional, always very conscious of safety and super friendly. Would rate this as a must-do for any short trip to melbourne if you want to get around and see some really good spots. Good lunch stop too.
