140,000 trips to date for city cycles? That’s pretty darn impressive to my way of thinking. And to think of all the knockers at the start of the scheme -> suffer in your jocks


Edit to change 'today' to 'to date"

I rememberr the thread on here that was asking who the first up Cootha on a City Cycle would be. Love their work. Hope they don't get the bikes back late.

A mate of mine did the City Cycle up Coot-tha. He said it was a bit slower than normal and he noticed a couple of snails giving him a run for his money ;)

I chortled when the journo said "...compared with a 12 speed Cannondale...". Don't think the journo rides a Cannondale :roll: :shock: 8)

How about this for a nightmare scenario - you are grinding up Coot-tha and some bloke calmly overtakes you on a Citycycle :shock:
Would be even worse if he dressed in a suit and bowler hat :!:
