Rey Appleby or at the Bike track but I would recommend talking to Rey Appleby, tell him Robert Cumine sent you. Not sure that Tassie Cycles do but the guy from BNA just bought Tsssie Cycles so he might help you out.

Matt, bascially nothing going for road bike hire

http://www.bikehiretasmania.com.au/ was run by Applebly's but they're out of that now.
Derwent bike hire – Cenotaph --- 0428899169 have a range of bikes but more your flat bar
Moto adventure – Macquarie Wharf – 0447556189 have electric and cruisers
Mona – Waterfront again cruiser style bikes

they're all about $20-$30 per day

There is also Art Bikes at Musuem or Arts TAS in Elisabeth Street, they're free and include some cool VanMoof bikes http://www.arts.tas.gov.au/artsatwork/artbikes (Just read page Museum depot is closed during the renovations but you can get them from henry Jones Art Hotel)
They were intended to ride from gallery to gallery or arts location but people use them for general sight seeing.

You may have to forgo the challenge of Wellington and head out to MONA instead for some kulcha.

If you check any of the hire places out and have any info. to add it would be good to know.

Hi Matt

If the bike shop avenue doesn't work - give us an idea of what sort of bike size and gears are required and one of us locals might be able to help.
