A recession-hit German brothel has come up with a novel way of generating trade and simultaneously saving the planet: Discount shags for cyclists. Those arriving on pedal-powered transportation at Berlin's "Maison d'envie" bawdy house will get €5 off the normal price of €70 a pop for 45 minutes. Those who don't want to tire …

Thanks for the Vital Traveller Rest Stop Information, Lester. A Priceless Service to Register Rendered.
Remembering that man who was caught getting naughty with his bicycle in a hotel room, maybe next step for this brothel will be to offer a "private space" for cyclists too fond of their bikes...
I'd ask what the IT angle on this story is if it wasn't pointless.
Still, five points for LOL.
"Come By Bike".
My wife is supporting this initiative
Because if she don'y start doing the business soon I'm off to buy a bike.
Funny how the credit crunch can affect the availability of something that was free before you got married.
Anonymous coward for obvious reasons
So there's a discount if you come on the bus?
Man needs a woman like a fish needs a bicycle....
......but even a fish needs a ride now and again!!

Peddaling their wares..
- chain reaction in times of crisis
- saddle-sore but back for more
- best ride you'll ever have
- polish the helmet
ok, I'm off - mine's the yellow jersey..
The Tour De France today announced a change to the planned route.
And anyone that says whats the IT angle should be classed as a troll and given a 48 hour commentard ban, ah Ms Bee (thats what the icon i've used is for Mr HFoster).
A new business opportunity...!
Open a shop around the corner that rents bicycles for €1 per hour!
So in a week, more than 21 people found themselves saying, "You know, I would love to visit a brothel but I'm not paying more than €65 for it... Oh look. A discount!"
Mine's the one with €5 euros and a bus ticket in the pocket.
Was that here?
Where I read about an 'all inclusive' brothel in Germany? I think it was around €120 for an 'all you can eat' brothelfest...
...and yes, 'all' includes drinks and lady company.
Thumbs up for the Germans (nutch nutch, know what I mean?)
They run buses (or subways) right to the door? Methinks I need to move to Germany.
Well, there are more solutions
Translated: "it's cheaper without a room" -
Do you get another discount
on top if you come in a jiffy?

@Mike Moyle: form your name I gather you are not, but that Idea is the most Argentinian i've seen in ages...... Cheers from the southern land of the cheap !
Ooh its cheaper there
Cheaper than in NZ - here it's $180/hr (thats about 90 euros). Not that I'd know personally of course, I found it on ter interwebs
Maybe German girls are not so attractive though
"So there's a discount if you come on the bus?"
No, but you'll probably be arrested...
@ NZ Coward
Don't forget your velcro gloves ...
@Do you get another discount
"on top if you come in a jiffy?"
They do have a 15 minute 30 € or 25 € if you come on a bike/bus (nudge nudge). That would suit me as i don't believe in wasting time.
Run the site through google translate and the second last extras option looks interesting, though best not mention the war.
Das ist gut

70 euros a pop? What if you don't pop - do they put the bill on hold until you do ? Just exercise a bit of restraint and tell them you'll see them again tomorrow for the "finale"... Rinse, repeat etc.
Whats the IT angle?
