    Public transit when the oil runs out
    The glass isn't half empty, it isn't half full. There just isn't enough in there. And what is in there probably tastes like crap anyway.

    They've had one of these going in North Sydney for a few years. We're also thinking of doing one for Ride to Work day on the Gold Coast this year. I might hang on to that link.

    I'd hate to be the last person on the bus route. Imagine being the only passenger and having to pedal that thing on your own.

    2,500kg divided by 32 cyclists = 78kg of bus per person! and I thought that my Steel MTB was heavy!!!

    I wonder what speed difference there would be between students and some Tour de France guys?

    78kg ?? That's a lot!! I guess once it starts moving, things should be easier.

    I think if you got 32 tour riders on that bus you'd start breaking things... like the bus!
