Come and join our award winning company on a fabulous guided bike tour and discover some of Perth’s majestic foreshores. This gentle ride utilises Perth’s comprehensive network of modern cycle paths leaving you the opportunity to explore and absorb the scenic and very photogenic locations.
This fun, vibrant and wonderfully engaging tour starts under the watchful eyes of the giant frill neck lizard and numbat public artworks at the Mindeerup piazza, South Perth’s foreshore gateway. From here we peddle a specially chosen route that has been carefully curated to ensure we avoid major hills, keeping the route as flat and enjoyable as possible.
Heading towards the Causeway bridge, we stop and explore some hidden wetlands, learn about historical locations whilst observing some incredible bird life. We continue on into the photogenic Optus Stadium hub and across the very iconic Matagarup bridge and into Claisebrook Cove for a cafe break. We enjoy the lovely waterscapes of this vibrant hub and spend time discovering a significant location for the local Noongar people of the area.
Our ride back takes us through the waterfront precinct of Elizabeth Quay, an area that brings the city and river together. Here your guide will highlight some of Perth’s more urban and modern locations including the unique and distinctive Bell Tower.
We finish our tour with a gentle ride over the Narrows Bridge and back to the South Perth foreshore.
Our small group guided tours and energetic narrative are all about actively connecting you with nature rather than strenuous exercise and so cater for a wide range of ages and skill levels. We aim to leave you energised and with a strong sense of accomplishment.
The route has been carefully curated to minimise hills. We do stop regularly for breaks, discussions and photo opportunities. You should be prepared to exercise with some periods of increased heart rate.
As a reference this tour would be suitable for those who are active or can ride a bike.
