Bike and riding gear hire in Canberra

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by reedy75, Aug 22, 2009.

  1. Hey there,
    Next month I will be in Canberra for 5 weeks with work. I am flying up so can't take my bike or riding gear. Can anyone suggest a place to hire a bike and some riding gear while I'm in the ACT. Can wait to see the county side by bike.

  2. it would probably be cheaper to buy one
  3. +2
  4. Ring Canberra Motorcycle Centre and ask whoever answers, they will be able to tell you who is around. (02) 6280 4491
    I haven't been there for a few years due to interstate move, but used to get very good service there.
  5. or
    you could fly to sydney, hire a 1098 for a couple hundred and realise damn, now you have to do lots of riding to get to Canberra :grin:
  6. +1 they do have good service and should be able to tell you. I don't think there is anywhere here to hire a motorbike, there are only 3 or 4 bike shops and the climate isn't the most motorbike friendly at the moment. Good luck
  7. What's stopping you riding up? :p
  8. I can't ride up as I have to fly up with a crew of work guys and I have heaps of gear to take with me. But thanks for the replies I will give the bike shops a call.
