Construction of Brisbane's CityCycle bicycle share/hire scheme has started. The number of stations where you can hire a bike is quite staggering and will make the scheme very useful to get around the centre of Brisbane. The map below comes from the BCC web site.
CityCycle will bring Brisbane alongside the hundreds of other cities worldwide with bike sharing systems. The Bike-sharing Blog is a fantastic record of how these systems are being rolled out worldwide. The blog has a fantastic Google map that illustrates how the bike sharing revolution is being rolled out all over the world and provides links to the web-sites for each of the different schemes.
