Hello. I am attending a conference in Brisbane at the end of August and was wondering about recommendations to rent a bike. I would probably have about 2 hours in the mornings to ride. I am staying near Central Station and the meeting is at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. I don't plan on having a car so a shop within walking distance would be ideal.
I usually ride a road bike and usually get in about 160 to 200 km per week between commuting and group rides. On the web, I see a number of places to rent mountain bikes. This might be a good option if I am going out for 2 hour spins to look around, but part of me thinks it would be fun to be able to cover more ground on a road bike. Any must-do climbs in the area that would be painful on a mountain bike or hybrid?
All advice and thoughts appreciated.
