I am an avid mountain biker but I have always found cycling on sealed roads a bit boring. Since moving to Brisbane city that has changed. The council has made a concerted effort to cater for all cyclists (and pedestrians) and it's paid off. The paths around Southbank, Basin Botanic Gardens, Story bridge and even the bikeways to the Suburbs and uni's are well thought out and maintained. The council has even setup places you can hire bikes to ride around the city. So if you like to ditch the traffic and commute or just cruise on foot or cycle, Brisbane is definitely the place for it.
