Manly Bike Tours have a range of bikes available to hire for anywhere between an hour and a full day. Manly bike tours have taken it upon themselves to map out over 20kms of dedicated bike paths and off road trails to ensure you discover all the secluded coves, deserted beaches and breathtaking coastal views.
They cater for all levels of riders and carry a huge range of bicycles for rent, including;
cruisers, road bikes, off-road mountain bikes, kids' bikes and tandems (it is up to you to decide just how much you may want to challenge yourself up those hills).
The rates depend on the bike you choose but start from a minimum of $14 for the hour ($10 for kids). Included with every bike is a helmet, a bicycle lock, bicycle handle bar bag and a map. It is also a very good idea to come prepared with a few things like lots of water and sun block as it does get quite hot while riding.
For a little more excitement and a closer look at Manly there are guided tours available which are run by expert local guides. The 2 hour tour reveals all the hidden corners of Sydney's most beautiful coastal town. Hear the stories and relive the history that makes Manly what it is today. These are run daily at 10:30am.
Manly bike tours are lots of fun whether it is a family activity or a group of friends wanting to have a go. It is a day well spent without having to spend much money at all. So get on a bike and give it a go. You're guaranteed to have a ball even if you don't know how to ride a bike.

I have the deepest respect for anyone who can stay on a bike. I have always wanted to explore areas on one...however I have no sense of balance. The areas you describe are lovely so maybe i should try again.

Haha, I read this as "manly bike tours", as in bike tours which are manly, rather than in Manly. Lol. No wonder I don't ride bikes =S Nice article by the way :)
