The Cycles

Due to start today! Rent a bike and ride around London. I'll give it a couple of weeks and report back. Great idea don't you think?

How fun! They have a similar system in Paris.

Luis Gomez said...

These are great!

You've got Bixis!!! Or at least that's what we call them in Montreal :o) We got the idea from Paris and put the system into use last year and then New York gave it a shot (don't know if they kept them though?) and now you guys are doing it! They just keep getting more and more popular here :o)

I hear of big problems with vandalism with the Paris project. Let's hope London makes a better showing. Are helmets required in London? Are there helmets with these bikes?

RedPat said...

Such a great idea! We are supposed to be getting them here in Toronto next spring - hope it works.

Apparently, the big issue in Paris is the tourists. They use them as a "cheap" way of touring the city. They are really neat to see though and I have a similar picture of them from Paris. I hope they work out for London!

Really a great idea. But isn't it dangerous to go by bike in London? I've never seen separate bike lanes. Enjoy yourself! And good luck!

Caroline said...

Wonderful idea! Do they come with helmets too?

Gunn said...

Yes, that is a great idea. I will try it out next time... :)

Babzy said...

Hope it works out OK and doesn't get abused by yobs.

Witness said...

Wat a line!

It's a brilliant idea though personally cycling in central London would be out of bounds. Good advertising for Barclays, too!

Mike said...

Mo a great idea and some cool bikes too. Having cycled around Bangkok I reckon London would be tame :-)

B SQUARED said...

A great idea that would never work here.

Sharon said...

Such a great idea! I'd give it a try.

John said...

Boris was on the news with a big grin on his face. Hope the idea takes off.

jennyfreckles said...

Sounds like a good idea - only time will tell. I think London has lots of possible cycle routes away from the busy main streets.

Hans said...

Excellent idea! It has worked for 15 years in Copenhagen, so I'm sure it'll will work in London :)

Angie said...

It made the West Ozzie news last night.

Doris said...

Great! It will be a good way to travel in London. Did it set up everywhere?

Steffe said...

Brilliant with the woman walking by.

The Lone Beader® said...

Very cool! How much does it cost to rent one?

William K Wallace said...

I personally think it is a terrible idea. In my humble opinion there are already enough cyclists that haven't got a clue about the rules of the road and as well as those that are too scared to go on the road so they cycle on the pavements.

I think it would have been a better idea to make the roads safer for cyclists, and possible giving them all road awareness lessons, and what about some cycle helmets cause they are going to need them...Can you guess how much I dislike cyclists?

Such schemes maybe works in other cities where the cyclists have got manners, sense and the roads aren't as crazy as they are in London.
