Cultural Tours

Melbourne is renowned the world over for the richness of it's cultural life, we are blessed with a proliferation of galleries, artist run spaces, bars, live music venues, restaurants, cafes, heritage and contemporary architecture, retail, parks and gardens, places to go and things to do. Yes, yes - Melbourne has it all, that's why we live here.  So it's a complete no brainer that we share with locals and visitors how much more wonderful Melbourne is when you experience it on two wheels. See below a selection of cultural activity we make accessible by bike, or get in touch to talk about curating a cultural tour for you.

There is no better feeling than introducing a group of people to a new bike riding experience. Being on the bike, sharing stories and unique moments with a diverse group is the backbone of what we do. Our tours are capped at 24 participants and conducted at a relaxed and social pace, usually taking in 4 stops and covering less than 12 kms. See below for more info or get in touch to talk about programming a ride.
