>>1202947>another perso/n/ from Brisbane!
Two times I've gotten a lift to work with my bike with the plan to ride home and one time I had to basically steal a CityCycle helmet(I rode to the CBD to buy a new Helmet and then rode back and put the helmet back where I got it from) and the other time I had to ride without a helmet to Toombul Shoppingtown to buy one(a helmet), got swooped by a magpie on the way and it cut my ear open a little bit which was not cool.
So they(CityCycles) are useful at least a bit of the time if only because they gave me a helmet to use and avoid trouble with the cops and it looks like I'm not the only one given the number of people with bright yellow helmets floating around the city.
I actually used them for the first two years they were operational because I didn't have a decent bike at the time and I was at QUT so getting around the city was easier with those bikes than just walking, I had to carry a bike-helmet around with me everywhere however.
Really got me started on Cycling, got a better bike of my own and then never looked back, feel kind of bad because they are a great resource if you're getting around the inner-city.
