Electric bicycle hire – join the fun for these great cycling events

Now that our Brisbane weather is cooling down the bicycling events are starting to ramp up. If you are keen to join in but feel you are lacking some fitness or motivation for hills then hire an electric bicycle and have some fun.

Our hire electric bikes will give you plenty of oomph for those pesky hills and if you aren’t feeling so fit then the extra power and speed will make it seem so much easier (and faster!).

Our e-bikes for hire have batteries that will easily help you complete up to 50km and many have an even longer range. Just make sure you have some left to pedal home though 

Ask us if you have a particular preference for style or are planning to do a longer event. Last year a number of our bikes completed the 100km Brisbane to Gold Coast event so there is some great scope for you to join in too.

We recommend a 48 day hire to give you time to get used to your bike and to do the event yourself. Collect Friday. Return Monday. Talk to us at eBike Hire Brisbane though if you have particular requirements.

Here are some events that we suggest you hire one of electric bicycles for:

Sunday 23 April: Heritage Ipswich 100, and there are 50km and 25km rides as well.

These are beautiful and friendly rides that start and finish at the UQ campus in Ipswich, and take in some gorgeous Scenic Rim scenery as you ride. There is always a great crowd and lots of fun and entertainment at the end but the best part is the ride itself.

The ‘fun-filled 50’ is our recommendation of the distances on offer but there are shorter and longer ones too.

Brisbane Bike Week:

This is literally a festival for biking and every day there is something fun and interesting to do and try out. Hire an ebike for the whole week if you want or hire for a particular event.

Remember: We are offering 10% off hire to Cycling Brisbane members 🙂

Here are our suggestions for events to participate in:

Saturday 6 May: Love your Laneways Art Ride.

How much cooler can it get to cruise around town on a funky electric bike and look at art!?

Sunday 7 May: Great Brisbane Bike Ride.

Take part in the premier event of Bike Week. There are literally thousands of fellow riders and, depending on which distance you choose, you can climb over the Gateway Bridge, cruise through the Inner City Bypass (ICB) – one of the very few opportunities you can do this on a bicycle – and take in the beautiful Mt Coot-tha, if you choose to.

There are a number of distances you can choose to participate in starting from 10km, 40km, 75km or 110km routes, with the Coot-tha Challenge optional for 75km & 110km route riders.

Saturday 13 May: Pier to Point Womens Ride

Want to join your cycling girlfriends and enjoy this stunning relaxing Sunday ride? This is your chance and you don’t have to worry about being super fit or fast.

This ride takes in the scenic Sandgate/Redcliffe foreshore. You can choose from 25km or 40km options, and both start and finish from the Shorncliffe Pier.

As an extra incentive to get more women to join in we are offering a 2 for 1 48-hour hire for this event for Cycling Brisbane member. Collect Friday. Return Monday.

Come on. With our great electric bikes you can really enjoy yourself on these rides. Come ride with us 🙂
