I understand and acknowledge that there is a possibility that an injury or accident could occur and I agree to engage in this hire period at my own risk. I agree as a condition of hire, to wear all safety equipment provided and will operate the hired equipment in accordance with NSW road rules (eg. helmets at all times, lights at night, etc). I agree that I am solely liable and agree to pay for all expenses or any loss, damage or injury occasioned to me, or my property, or caused by me to any other persons or property. People undertaking long-term hire should organise their own insurance.

Damage / Loss

I agree to take full control of the hire equipment, assume total responsibility and agree to pay for any damages or loss of equipment whilst in my care. Bikes must be stored securely inside overnight (no unit block or hotel carparks). I understand damages and loss may be charged at new replacement rates. I understand Metro Cycles reserves the right to possess hired equipment at any time.

Over 18

I am over 18 years and shall supervise and be responsible for any children in my care.

Permitted Locations

I shall only ride within the Newcastle local government area (LGA) and adjoining LGAs unless prescribed by Metro Cycles. I shall not ride on mountain bike trails or in rough off-road conditions, unless on a mountain bike provided specifically for that purpose. I shall not ride on beaches or in salt water.

Pick Up & Return

I shall pick up and return the bike/s and equipment to Metro Cycles unless otherwise agreed prior to hire. Please take note of the opening hours on our website.

Punctures and Flat Tyres

Most punctures occur on dry grass where thorny weeds thrive. If a puncture or other mechanical fault occurs during the hire period, please contact Metro Cycles immediately to discuss options. Within reason, we will attempt to get you back on the road ASAP but this may not always be possible. Phones will be unattended when we are closed. Puncture kits are available upon request.
