October 2020

What a journey it’s been! From humble beginnings back in 2012 when Freddy was running a hobby business from the back of his van, to now where we’ve established ourselves as Melbourne’s top rated bicycle tour and rental company. And after 8 years as Freddy’s Bike Tours, we thought it was time for a change (we also had lots of time on our hands, thanks 2020) It’s goodbye to our cliche kangaroo and hello to another native – the striking blue tongue lizard – launching a new era as Blue Tongue Bikes!

But to all of our friends out there, don’t worry, it’s still the same friendly team, only we’ve added a new face – meet Larry, our loveable larrikin lizard! Larry’s the new public face of the operation and embodies our jovial, light-hearted spirit. 

To go with the launch, we’re offering new rental products. Our minimum rental period is now 2 hours, with City Cruiser rental starting from only $20. We’ve also added overnight rental – perfect for those looking to head down to St. Kilda on a balmy summer evening. Overnight rental is the same price as All Day rental, starting at $30. Earliest pick-up for overnight rental is 4pm, returning before 10am. 

Our tours remain suspended for now due to Covid-19 border closures however we hope they will be back soon as things get better in our beloved Melbourne. Private tours are still possible and can be booked in advance by calling 0490 553 673. 

We hope to see you down at Batman Park soon!
