Welcome to Forrest MTB Hire

Forrest MTB Hire is a bike hire company operating from the gardens of Forrest Guesthouse. We have a small fleet of bikes so putting in a request early is your best chance at hiring the bikes you want on your desired date.

What's available for hire?

We have Giant Talon 1 hardtail mountain bikes. This means they have front suspension but no rear suspension. These are a cross country style mountain bike, perfect for our trails here in Forrest. Depending which size you hire, they will have 27.5 or 29 inch wheels and 80-100mm front suspension. All bikes have disc brakes and a 1x10 gear set up. We include a drink bottle holder, mini pump, spare tube and tyre levers. All bike hires include a helmet that meets Australian Safety standards.

Bike hire requests and collection

Forrest MTB Hire is run by Michelle Davidson and bikes are available for collection and drop off from 16 Grant Street, Forrest.

Collection times: Full day hire can be booked Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm, or Saturday 9am - 5pm.

Half day hires can be booked Monday to Friday from 8am - 12pm or 1pm - 5pm. On Saturdays, the half day hire is from 9am- 1pm.

You must collect your bike within 15 minutes of the start of your session.

Drop off times: Bikes must be returned within 15 mins of the end of the hire period to avoid a late charge.

What happens after you request bikes? If we can supply what you request, we will send you a quote, otherwise we will let you know that we can't fulfil the request. The next closest hire shops are in Anglesea and Geelong.

What do you need to ride?

Closed toe shoes, a water bottle that fits a standard bottle cage, and snacks. We also recommend you download the Trailforks app on your phone so you have access to a map while riding.

What size bike do I need?

Use your height to determine which size bike you should select.
