These guys look after you from the start. They have your best interests at heart and their bikes are excellent. It really is a great way of seeing the many sights of the Central Coast from The Entrance down to Umina Beach. Ride the many shared paths and bike lanes to access the views of Brisbane Water, the beaches, the reserves, shops and attractions. It’s very affordable and they can come to you with range of different bikes to chose from. Contact Rod, the owner, for more help.

Great Day Out

★★★★★ Reviewed 29 December 2015

We had a great day with Boomerang Bikes from the Pines Caravan park in Belmont – rode the Fernleigh Track, stopping at Redhead for lunch on the way back. Bikes, although looking well loved, worked fine and we had no problems. My 7yo daughter loved the tandem and 11yo son enjoyed his own bike even after a 35km ride. We booked them the night before and Rod was friendly and accommodating, dropping off and picking up at the caravan park.
