      Fantastic customer service
      Good old fashioned customer service! Had a fantastic experience and was looked after like a king. The team went out of their way to accommodate me late on a rainy Sunday when they were about to close early.

      Bike Repairs
      Wonderful friendly staff and easy to find location. I often call in for bike repairs on my way to the ferry to work, it's so convenient, I can drop my bike off and pick it up again, all repaired ready to ride home. The staff are super friendly, helpful and polite and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend this business.

      A great ride
      Hired 2 e bikes. Had a wonderful day exploring Manley. Even made it up to North Head quite something for an unfit occasional bike rider. So this is the way to go. Great friendly staff.

    WE rented bikes from Manly Bike hire and set off to ride up the northern beaches closely following the coast. The geography is amazing with exceptional views over beaches , quiet streets with amazing Architecture and natural bushland around lake Narrabeen As a result we ended riding all day up to Church Point and next time well ride to Palm Beach .! If only the Council could get its act together in joining the dots between the designated cycle paths it would then be the greatest ride in the world! Manly bike hire were amazing and the bikes well maintained, safe and comfortable. I cannot phase them enough and you should definitely contemplate doing the ride

    Great experience hiring e-bike and road bike from Manly bike hire and tours. The bikes are high quality, well maintained and the staff hugely helpful and informative. The e-bikes have great battery range and we were able to comfortably do some long return rides to Palm Beach on one day and Kuringai national park on another. Highly recommend for a great active day out exploring the beautiful northern beaches!

    Three friends and I had a great experience renting through manly bikes. Jimmy and Seb were exceptionally helpful fitting each bike to the person and ensuring our selection was appropriate for the purpose. In a couple of hours we cycled up to and all around the Sydney Harbour National Park at North Head, including down to the Quarantine station wharf, where there is a nice cafe and even better view! We used a combination of hybrid and electric bikes so could all move at the same pace. The hybrid gearing was good and helped us manage the hilly terrain, and a map attached to the bike indicated an access route which avoided some of the steeper sections getting out of town. Thanks guys for facilitating a great day out!

    Hired 2 e-bikes - great service from Francesco. Informed us in detail of the best routes. Bikes were excellent. I would highly recommend. My only comment would be the ride along Manly Beach to the Boat House restaurant is VERY pedestrian heavy so it was very hard to cycle but other than that, fantastic day and saw Hump Back whales.

    Highly Recommend. Myself and my 13 year old son hired two Electric bikes from Manly bike tours and cannot recommend enough. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and the bikes maintained and top quality. We rode around the Manly foreshore and up the Quarantine station stopping for a swim and photos. It is now our number 1 day activity when visiting Manly. Will definately be doing it again soon.

    Francisco helped me find the perfect bike for a memorable ride around manly’s north head nature reserve. Would highly recommend hiring a bike from Manly Bike Tours for a fun day activity - whether you are a local or traveller. I will be back!

    The rental shop is at the beginning of the Corso near the ferry. Friendky staff and a quick booking. Go for the electric bike. Not the most powerful in the world, but they will get you up any hill in Manly. A 1hr rental will get you to Queenscliffe and then to North Head. Be careful coming down steep hills because the brakes are just normal ones. Remember to ask for a helmut and be prepared to use your bell for wandering day trippers totally unaware of bikes. All good fun.

    The staff recommended my wife and I (both over 50) to take ebikes instead of regular bikes. It ended up being the best choice, we cruised up the hills to north head and spent some time cycling around Manly beach. Highly recommended

    The employees at Manly Bikes are extremely friendly and helpful. I couldn't find the bike shop and the employee came out to find me and guide me to the store! At the store, the employee spend a good amount of time explaining to me different routes, places to see and eat. I can't wait to rent again from Manly bikes.

    I originally reserved two tandem bikes for four of us, but when we arrived to pick up the bikes, Jack convinced us that we really should rent e-bikes for where we wanted to ride. He was so right! None of us had used an e-bike before and now we’re hooked! We had so much fun riding and the bike trails were full of interesting things to see. This was a great way to spend an afternoon in Manly.
