First, the code wasn't working to unlock the bike. Called them up, but still couldn't get a bike out. Half an hour later my bank called, said my credit card had been compromised, and they cancelled it.

Melbourne bike share is a great way to get around and see Melbourne. It's also pretty cheap ($3 a day, $8 a week). The seats aren't the most comfortable but hey you get off and on a lot so doesn't matter too much
