Feedback from bike pod users

The bike pod has provided me with a facility to refresh after a long ride from Essendon. My work day is now a lot more enjoyable after showering at the bike pod.

The bike pod facility and security surprised me, I was impressed with the cleanliness and convenience, now I no longer have to pay to shower at the gym!
