CBD/harbour bike rentals

Postby hondaboy » Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:34 am

Hi guys,

I'm in Sydney very briefly this weekend and would like to hire a bike for a couple of hours to do a casual ride from the CBD to around the harbour and back.

I've done a search without much luck, can anyone recommend a bike hire rental place that is reasonably close to Elizabeth St/Wentworth Ave?

Weather aside, would Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon present better riding conditions (ie less pedestrians/traffic) around the harbour area, or are they just as busy both days?

Thanks

The nearest one I know is at the other side of Darling Harbour/Pyrmont Bridge. Much more cycling friendly there as you have the cycle path leading up to Anzac Bridge. I think it's this website

You can't miss it. It's across Pyrmont Bridge and the National Maritime Museum. They have heaps of bikes, e-bikes outside their shop so presumably they rent them. (as I live locally, I have several bikes and don't rent ;-) )

There is also this

Weekends are fine (many peds around Circular Quay and Darling Harbour though), daytime is ok outside peak hours (lots of cyclists and cars about).
