Once here, bicycle is a great way to get around. St Kilda has dedicated bike tracks along the foreshore which allows you to enjoy the sights, the food and the beach by bike, without leaving the bike track.
Melbourne Bike Share is designed for short trips around St Kilda and the city. If you would like to hire a bike for a day, you can purchase a subscription that suits you, take a bike when you need it and then return it to one of the 50 bike stations throughout the city. In St Kilda there are bike stations on Fitzroy Street, Cleve Street and outside Luna Park.
Riding without a bike helmet is illegal in Australia. You can purchase helmets for $5 from vending machines at Southern Cross Station and at 7-Eleven stores – see a list of locations here.
