Where can I hire a bike at a discounted rate?
We provide this information to assist our visiting participants – please make your own arrangements directly with the bike hirers.
There are a number of places to hire bikes in Melbourne. One place is Freddy’s Bike Tours and Rentals.
Freddy’s Bike Tours and Rentals are located in a shop next to Batman Park on the edge of the Yarra River, not far from Southern Cross Railway station.
Freddy’s Bike Tours and Rentals provided discounted bike hire for WNBR Melbourne 2020. We are yet to confirm arrangements for the 2021 ride.
They are generously offering (2020 arrangement) $5 off the price of either half day, full day or 24 hour bike hire. To access this discount, first go to the bike rental page of their website on the link provided.
Scroll down to select the type of bike first (a bike with gears is worth considering) and select the “Book a Bike” tab associated with your chosen model of bike. Select only one participant, (as the $5 discount is applied per booking, not per participant), date and duration of booking. Then select the “Book Now” tab. On the next screen, select the “Add Promo code / Voucher” tab. Enter the code “naked5” and select the “Apply” tab. Continue your booking, with the $5 discount applied to the final price.
Freddy’s Bike Tours and Rentals is a good choice to hire bikes from for the 2020 ride. They have 90 bikes to hire, of various types, but we suggest booking early to get the bike that you prefer.
A bike with gears is a good choice! And consider a way of carrying plenty of water, your phone for photos at the photo stops, and other stuff.
And we strongly recommend carrying bathers, underwear or shorts somewhere on the bike, just in case! We will be handing out suitable small plastic bags and ties to attach this to your bike at the Meeting Area prior to the ride, just don’t leave it to the last minute to sort this out.
All bike hire arrangements are to be made directly with the bike hire shop. The hirer is responsible to ensure that all of the conditions of hire are complied with. Please be nice to the shop staff, as we are grateful for their support!
Make sure that you arrive at the Meeting Area before the ride in plenty of time to enjoy the venue (it will be very busy) and arrive no later than 1.15 pm for the pre-ride briefing, which is mandatory.
Freddy’s Bike Tours and Rentals is a Supporter of World Naked Bike Ride Melbourne. Please go to the Supporter page of our website for further details.
Final details in relation to the ride will be notified via emailed newsletter and on our Facebook event page, one week before the ride date.
