If children are able to ride a small adult's bike, then they are able to participate in either the Brisbane City Tour or Brisbane River Tour, and if you want to bring your own bike along, you are most welcome to do so. Both of these tours run for a duration of approximately four hours, including lunch and coffee breaks. Your guide will stick to the bike paths as much as possible, so you can be assured the tours are safe and if anyone encounters a minor mechanical problem, like a flat tyre, it can be dealt with on site. Most importantly, the tour group will remain together at all times and no one will be left behind. To participate in either tour, the total cost is $75 per person.

For those who want more of a challenge, try the Brisbane Blast, a 1 to 2 hour ride through Brisbane City and the surrounds. It is great for those who want improve or maintain their heath and fitness as it is an energetic ride. To take part in the Brisbane Blast, it is expected that you have moderate cycling skills and are reasonably fit. These tours start bright and early at either 6am or 7am, are priced at $50 per person and also run seven days a week.
