Sydney Bike Tours has launched new GPS guided, audio cycling tours of Sydney CBD and Manly Beach.
Utilising the growing network of bicycle paths in Sydney, the tours safely guide you to a selection of Sydney's famous attractions, using both on-screen directions and audio navigation, via a standard smart phone.
"It's wonderful to be able to combine the latest in GPS and audio technology, with cycling around the city of Sydney. It now means that tourists can explore the city at their own pace while still having the benefit of a tour guide commentary along the way" Co-director James van Rooyen said.
The app can be downloaded for from either of their two locations via WiFi, and doesn't require a data connection whilst you are cycling, all the information is stored on the device.
The “Bike the Bridge” tour over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge is the most popular ride. Alternatively guests can cruise the harbour-side board walk, past the city's iconic park lands to the Fish Markets; ride along the world famous Manly and Bondi beaches, and even spot whales from North Head. At each destination, guests will hear in-depth commentary covering the history, culture and unique stories of life in Sydney.
Sydney Bike Tours carry a huge range of hire bicycles. Kid's bikes cost $20 a day and Adult bikes start from $28 a day. If you need a smart phone device, you can hire one for the day at only $10.
