SEB now offers rental Electric Bikes and Tours around Sydney. A brilliant way to get familiar with the joys of electric pedal assist and experience the best way to see Sydney.
We offer different ebikes for hire for single day or multiple days.
PYRMONT CBD EBIKES
THORNLEIGH E MOUNTAIN BIKES
We provide instruction on use of the bikes, a local map, helmet, lock and links to popular rides starting from our Shop in Pyrmont or offroad riding near our Thornleigh store. See more of Sydney in four hours than you can ever imagine in a car or public transport.
Battery range depends on what level of pedal assist you choose and how much pedalling effort you provide. A realistic estimate is 40 to 60km. A fully charged battery will suit a 3hr rental or 6hr rental if you are breaking for lunch or sightseeing. We can supply you a charger if you are concerned about running low or if you have hired for more than 3 hours.
What we need from you.
We will need to hold a valid drivers license or a Passport if you are visiting from overseas. Please bring that with you as we hold that during the rental period. In addition you will need to pay a safety deposit of $500 which is a pre authorisation on your credit card or a cash payment. Fully refundable when the bike is returned in working order after a check over.
Please note that any damage to the bike will be your responsibility to pay for. Electric bikes are expensive compared to standard bicycles especially electric parts so please ride responsibly. Crucial if you take out an electric mountain. Know your limits - a crash can injure yourself and result in a hefty bill, not a good day out.
The bikes are not insured for theft so use the lock we provide or keep the bike close to hand. You are responsible for the bike. If it's stolen it will cost you between $2000 to $5000 to replace depending on the model. You will be signing an agreement that outlines this and we take a photograph of you with the bike at the time of rental. If the bike is not returned we will report it as stolen with the police and supply them a serial number of the bike and a photo of yours truly.
You will also need to sign a printed Waiver in the shop before you ride.
For all rental and tour participants we can credit you the full amount you pay towards the cost of a new electric bike. There is no better way to see if an ebike is going to work for you than spending the day on one.
