Welcome to the Human Powered Cycles website.
Human Powered Cycles is an independent bike shop located at 562 High St. Thornbury (that’s in Melbourne – for those of you browsing from afar…). You can find out more about how to find us here.
We stock a range of quality commuting bikes, long distance tourers, vintage and retro style cycles and kids bikes. Our range is selected to cater for cyclists who like to get by without using cars as much as possible; people who want their bikes to last a long time and withstand the rigours of daily use in all conditions. Our bikes are chosen for their practicality and durability: they take racks, mudguards, baby seats and all the other accessories to make your bike enjoyable to ride, rather than a chore.
All of the products we stock are selected according to these principles – we try them out on our bikes and see how well they perform in real conditions. We also carry a wide range of spares to give your favourite bike a new lease of life, or to build up a new bike from a bare frame. You can find out more about our workshop service here.
This website is currently undergoing an overhaul – so you may find certain sections which are a little bit out of date (hopefully not too many!). If you have any enquiries, please send us an email, or if you’d like to leave a comment, you can do so here.
