harsh rosarian

The idea is good. The bikes were easy to ride. However 3 main problems. a) Difficulty ' unlocking' the bikes. It was not clear how to do this and someone had to show us how (it's not just me becasue when I docked my bike I had to help another couple get their bikes. b) Lack of signs showing which routes to cycle on. I ended up cycling on a pedestrian only route but there was nothing to indicate this. An extremely officious man told me it was not for bikes. He was quite rude and had I not been British and used to such petty officials it might have put me off being in the country. c) Buses 0r some drivers. They would pull right out when you tried to go past them and I felt quite vulnerable. Next time I'll research my route better and at least I'll know how to get the bike out first time y
