London cycle hire locations revealed

London-Cycle--Hire-Scheme-001

The London Cycle Hire scheme is well underway and the Guardian even has a low-res picture of some of the proposed locations. No doubt more information will be out soon from TFL. So far what we know:

  • Over 6000 bicycles
  • 400 sites to pick them up
  • Plans for each docking station to only be around 300 metres apart
  • Camden looks set to be the first location for the cycle hire scheme
  • Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (dangers of drunk people thinking its a great idea to hire a bike to cycle home – I think so)
    Will keep you up to date with more info as I hear about it

    This is great news, though being a daily cyclist in London myself it does make me wonder. Have seen too many casualties lately on the road.

    Let’s hope the increase in cyclists will improve motorists behaviour if not our own!
