the city bike…

the city bikeIf you’re visiting Adelaide and you like to ride a bike, you’re in luck. The city has a scheme of free bicycle hire it calls City Bikes. Yep, totally free – all you have to do is provide some sort of ID as collateral (eg: licence, passport), and you’re on your way, with a bike, helmet and lock.
The city is as flat as a pancake, the roads are generally wide and almost always quiet, and the parks have a network of well maintained trails. It is paradise on two wheels!

  1. How do they deal with the bugbear of any hire bike scheme in Australia — mandatory bicycle helmets? Do you get to hire a dodgy used helmet worn by the last hirer or are you expected to provide your own (in which case you’ve probably got your own bike)?
