The Green Pedal Story
David founded Green Pedal Cycles in 2020. Establishing a new business during the pandemic was always going to be challenging, but David is always up for a challenge! David and his wife Suzanna had their own e-bikes and were enjoying them so much, that this inspired them to establish an e-bike hire – bike rental service for visitors to Echuca Moama. After research, planning and more research they decided on the structure of the business, sourced e-bikes and standard bikes and David built a customised bike trailer so that the business could come to the customer. The Green Pedal trailer will often be found at the Echuca Visitor Information Centre, or delivering bikes to accommodation in Echuca and Moama. David has also customised a number of cycling tours in Echuca and Moama, including the popular Echuca Scenic tour. Another favourite is the Bike to Winery tour that heads over to Moama. Visitors are always impressed with the beautiful river views, the scenic bike trails and the depth of local knowledge that David shares. Every month David and Suzanna also host a guided e-bike tour from Axedale (about 45 minutes from Echuca and 15 minutes from Bendigo). This is a whole day tour, departing Axedale on the O’Keefe Rail Trail to either Bendigo or Heathcote and return.
