Manly Bike Tours Reaches The Moon

Since Manly Bike Tours began in 2007, Manly Bike Tours customers have now collectively ridden the same distance as between the Earth and the Moon.

With over 30,000 customers renting bikes for, on average, a 13km ride, they have clocked up an impressive 390,000km - more than the distance between the Earth and the Moon (approx 380,000km) or the equivalent of 31 times around the Earth.

Some interesting statistics in travelling that distance.

Bike fleet - 120
Tyres used - 2,160
Brake pads changed - 3,200
Longest individual bike ride - 1,900km (Sydney to Brisbane return!)

So now its just a question of, once they are at the moon, how much further to Mars?

Manly Bike Tours offers self guided bike rental in Manly. They are located opposite Manly Wharf, a 30 minute ferry ride from Sydney CBD and are open 7 days a week.
