10 News covers BDO Brisbane Coot-tha Challenge

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 :!:
