We had a great day with Boomerang Bikes from the Pines Caravan park in Belmont – rode the Fernleigh Track, stopping at Redhead for lunch on the way back. Bikes, although looking well loved, worked fine and we had no problems. My 7yo daughter loved the tandem and 11yo son enjoyed his own bike even after a 35km ride. We booked them the night before and Rod was friendly and accommodating, dropping off and picking up at the caravan park.
