Boris Bikes in Melbourne

I was quite surprised to find when I visited Melbourne last year for the first time in a few years that the city had grown its own equivalent of London’s Boris Bikes. I haven’t noticed many people actually riding them, though, perhaps because in Australia you’re legally required to be wearing a helmet. The operators of the bike hire have obviously thought of that, though. You can rent helmets along with the bikes—that’s what the blue vending machine in the distance is for.
