Overnight, London has filled up with racks of bicycles in hot spots around the English capital. With an estimated 400 [this number is subject to change] new ‘Docking Stations’, London mayor Boris Johnson is hailing it as “a new dawn for the bicycle in the capital”. This new scheme, called Barclays Cycle Hire, allows users to, well, hire cycles. The docking stations, located in areas all around the city, including Camden, Hackney, Kensington and Chelsea and several of the Royal parks, permit users who have access to a debit or credit card [sorry, Oyster card not accepted] to hire these space age looking bikes by the hour, or even for the whole day [make sure it’s back before your 24hours is up, otherwise you turn into a pumpkin, at a hefty price].
