“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Had a punctured tyre that needed repair. Very happy I popped into WBBR before going anywhere else. Jonny spoke excellent English to my relief, his manners were impeccable and after I returned to the shop with my bike later that same day, the puncture was repaired within 15 minutes! For those on vacation and have the same issue I paid NIS 40 (price was taken from a price list) which I believe would have been far more if I had gone to one of the 'bike shops' that you see along Sderot Yerushalyim.

“Excellent Bike Rentals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

The owner is very nice and this is an excellent place. I rented an electric bike,my first time, and found out that there are two types:

Totally electric - which Wheel Bee Bike Rental does not rent, since it is illegal to rent these type of bikes although I've seen them everywhere. Apparently none are rented.

Semi Electric - These bikes are what Wheel Bee Rental rents. They only provide electrical power when you pedal. The pedaling is easy, since you have the assist, so it's not really exercise like in a non-electric bike and it's not really just putting your foot on the pedal and going, like in a total electric bike. It's somewhere in between the two.

Not to say I regretted renting the semi -electric bike with the assist. Although Tel Aviv is basically flat there are slight inclines now and then and the electric assist really helped and of course the battery lasts much longer in an assist electric bike.

So all in all it's a matter of whether you want to go with the semi-electric bike or get some exercise and rent a non-electric bike. They have both.

“Fab, friendly' helpful and quality bikes..!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Great quality items and a very helpful friendly and polite sales assistant. Highly recommended. We took 3 hrs to travel to TA port, have lunch, shop, and ride back.. Wish we had opted for more hours!!
Would have liked to have more options on timing, 3 or 6 hrs is restricting... Ideally want 4 or 5 hrs.

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

We rented the electric bikes for 3 hours. We had a great time. We road from 1 end of Jaffa to the other end of Tel Aviv on the Sea. These bike are a bit different then other electric bikes we have rented. You need to pedal to keep the electric part working. It was great and a little exercise too. The people running this business are very nice people. Very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the whole thing. Do it you wont regret it!

“What a wonderful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We have rented bikes from Elinor at Wheelbee twice now and both times we have been delighted. She took the time to find exactly what suited us even when out requirements with children were quite complex, didn't raise an eyebrow when we came back a few times to swap bikes. When we had a puncture she extended out rental time to make up for it without blinking. She is technically perfect and delightful to deal with. We will come back again next year!
