Have you signed up for the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme? No doubt you've seen the bicycle docking stations throughout London. I think it's such a fantastic idea.
If you have an iPhone, you can download the free app, London Cycle, where you'll find a map showing every docking station in London + up-to-date bike availability. Brilliant! There's also a route navigator too.
Casual, walk-up bookings will be available soon, but in the meantime you can sign up for a membership key on TFL. Once your key (£3) comes in the post, you are good to go. Journeys under 30 minutes are free.
I'm looking forward to testing out the new scheme. I've never biked in London, so you'll most likely find me cycling along the quiet backroads... and away from the likes of Park Lane!
