Boris's Bikes start in London in July....

Base on the popular Parisian velib system the 'London Cycle Hire' starts on the 30th July with 6,000 bikes in 400 locations in the city.

Users will pay an initial membership fee of £1 for 24-hour access, £5 for seven-day access, or £45 a year. They can make unlimited journeys and the first half-an-hour will be free. On top of that, the London Cycle Hire charge for members will be £1 for a journey of between 30 minutes and one hour, £4 for up to 90 minutes, and £6 for up to two hours. Cyclists will use a new smart-card – similar to an Oyster card – to unlock the bike (Photo: TFL -Shows artist impression of bike station)
