Also, do you have any recommended routes from Melbourne up the coast that you could recommend?
Cycling gal - sorry cannot assist with bike hire, but if you are staying in Melbourne, there are numerous great coastal rides.
Firstly, google 'around the bay in a day' to see 200Km+ of riding around Port Phillip Bay.
Then, you can look at east of Melbourne - Phillip Island / South Gippsland, or west of Melbourne - Bellarine Peninsula, Great Ocean Road, etc.
If you are looking for a long tour 'up the coast' then head east of Melbourne, through Gippsland towards Lakes Entrance.
There are many fantastic areas in which to cycle - enjoy your trip.
