The guys from Melbourne Bike Cabs have a new addition to their Bike Cab empire. As well as offering a unique way to get around Melbourne, Bike Cabs now provide a carefully crafted tour around my favorite Melbourne neighbourhood, Fitzroy.
I was first in line to try them out and brought Melbourne newbie Leah along for the ride.
The novelty of riding in one of the Bike Cabs is worth the trip alone. Similar to southeast Asia’s rickshaws, the Bike Cabs are fuelled by pedal power generated by some strapping young men. I wasn’t complaining…
The Bike Cab trundled past the familiar sights of Collingwood (Fitzroy’s neighbour) as our guide pointed out the places of interest on our handy maps.The tour got really interesting as we darted through the back streets of Fitzroy. It’s the side streets of Fitzroy where all the best secrets lurk. Hidden street art murals line the walls and cute shops and cafes pop up from nowhere.
The best surprise was a newly opened restaurant which had a couple of Melbourne’s iconic trams on the roof! As you do…
We spent the remainder of the one hour tour excitedly pointing out my favorite Brunswick Street haunts to Leah, taking selfies and enjoying the ride.

I was lucky enough to be a guest of Melbourne Bike Cabs but opinions, as always, are my own.
