Welcome to the Human Powered Cycles website.

Human Powered Cycles is an independent bike shop located at 562 High St. Thornbury, Melbourne.  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This website is currently undergoing an overhaul – so you may find certain sections which are a little bit out of date (hopefully not too many!).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 inquiries, please send us an email. Otherwise find us on facebook or twitter @humanpcycles

A strange thing happens at this time of year when otherwise enthusiastic and, dare we say, zealous cyclists stop riding their bikes! The roads will soon be deserted but for the lone commuter, appropriately clad in waterproofs and pushing their well maintained, albeit mud-splattered bike along the grey streets of Melbourne. And YES, good on them! Because why would you travel any other way?

Which brings us to announce that we will unfortunately have to reduce our operating hours for the time being – so from this Sunday the …
