I like the Brisbane City Council idea of placing hire bikes around the city to be used as an alternative to trains, buses, taxis and personal automobiles, but has Campbell Newman for once got his timing wrong?
This photo, taken at the lower end of Edward Street suggests he has. With the Pacific Ocean gripped by a La Nina, Brisbane is forecast to have a wetter than average summer. You can get wet enough here in summer riding a bike when it isn’t raining, so when it does rain, riding is out of the question. Don’t those bike look shiny and new?
