First City Cycle Pub Crawl -April 20 2016. My brother-in-law Geoff and I discovered the incredible City Cycle scheme. Modelled on London’s Boris Bikes, one can acquire a 24 hire hour pass for the outrageous sum of two dollars. There is no other expense IF you have your bike for less than thirty minutes at a time. Whereas this sounds like it would inhibit, it actually becomes part of the game. There are stations all over inner Brisbane, so the idea is to check your bike in at a station within thirty minutes, and either check it (or another one) out again, or find one of the ubiquitous pubs or bars for an ale.
