BlueBananas Sydney Electric Bike Tours

About Us

It started with a simple bike ride around the city of Sydney…

We’re young, fun, energetic and dynamic. We’re BlueBananas!

Founding partners Michael Fattal and Steven Do are two friends who are passionate about tourism and cycling. Michael operates a travel company called PlanetBlueTours and Steve is a keen cyclist and bean counter.

Michael and Steven enjoyed organising regular local bike rides around Sydney with friends, family and visitors from overseas. A big challenge for Michael is that he was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a disease with no cure that has inhibited his ability to be physically active e.g. can’t walk more than 50 metres without being short of breath. Because he wanted to ride with his friends, Michael began to research into electric bikes.  After months of searching, he found the perfect bike all the way from the UK – the Gocycle. From the idea of leading guided electric bicycle tours around Sydney, BlueBananas was born.

Our vision is for BlueBananas to become a world renowned Australian company operating in every major city in Australia.

Giving back to the Community

Founding partner Michael Fattal was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus.

There is currently no cure. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. The mucus causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections which lead to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.

From birth, a person with CF undergoes constant medical treatments and physiotherapy.

Michael is a testament that with faith, hard work and a positive outlook on life, nothing is impossible.

To give back to the community, BlueBananas will donate $5.00 from every paid tour to Cystic Fibrosis NSW which supports families living with Cystic Fibrosis.

We encourage further donations to be made directly to Cystic Fibrosis NSW:
