How it Works
VeloCity Rides makes it easy to keep up your cycling routine while you are visiting Perth. We deliver your rental bike to your accommodation and collect it at the end of the day. We fit you to to a high-end carbon road bike equipped with Shimano Di2 electronic gears. No need to worry about unfamiliar streets or routes. Cycle with like-minded people. Included coffee after the ride. We offer group cycling at its best!
Tuesday and Thursday
Make your own way to the ride start location (Swan Bell Tower – Barrack St and Riverside Drive). The ride starts at 5.30, so please be there at least 5 minutes before, to meet other riders and to hear the pre-ride briefing. We will also do final bike fit adjustments before the ride. After a quick safety briefing, we take you on a 45 – 50km group ride at a moderate pace (28 – 30km/h) on some of Perth’s best cycling routes. There is a different route each day. Each ride is led by an experienced group leader, who may use wireless communication, for safety and to point out highlights along the way. Nobody gets dropped. At the end of the ride you receive a complimentary coffee and then you can make your way back to your accommodation in plenty of time for you to get ready for work or what ever plans you have for your day (no later than 7.45am). Of course, you are welcome to keep riding, as you have the bike for the day!
Cost: Escorted group ride, bike pickup & drop off at your accommodation and coffee $20 + $90 = $110.
Saturday – Sunday
On weekends, we have more time to undertake longer and more challenging rides, which are generally around 65 – 80km’s. The process works just the same as on weekdays but as it is the weekend we start a little later! Make your way to the ride start location which is at the rear of Garland Cycleworks (87 Canning Hwy, Victoria Park). The ride starts at 6.30am (and at 7.00 in Winter). The routes will include extended Swan and Canning River rides (usually on Saturdays) and glorious rides in the Perth hills (usually on Sundays).
Cost: Escorted group ride, bike pickup & drop off at accommodation and coffee $30 + $90 =$120.
