Fremantle is a great city for using your bike. It's quick, easy, good exercise and environmentally friendly!
Although Fremantle is built on a series of hills, the most interesting parts of the city – the city centre, the historic West End precinct, Fishing Boat Harbour, Swan River and the beaches of Leighton, Port and South Fremantle – are all reasonably level and easily accessible by bike.
Dedicated bicycle lanes throughout the city and shared cycle paths running north, south and along the river make it easy for cyclists to move around.
Here is a handy guide to cycle rules and tips from the Department of Transport.
The City of Fremantle's Free Wheeling Fremantle initiative, is a free bike hire service for a refundable deposit suitable for adults and teens.
You can use the bikes anywhere in the Fremantle area, allowing you to explore the city at your own leisurely pace.
Free bike hire is available from Monday to Friday 9am–4 pm, Saturday 9am–3 pm and Sunday and public holidays: 10am–3 pm.
Bikes are available from the Fremantle Visitor Centre.
