Dotted all over London are these cycle hire stations and if you know what you’re doing it’s a really beautiful way to see the city It’s very easy! £2 for 24 hours as long as you bring it back within half an hour There are 700 docking stations and 10 000 bikes and I can never seem to find one! to hire the bike for 24 hours is £2 and then all the rides that day are free AS LONG AS each ride is under half an hour so on 29.7 minutes, re-dock it and select a new bike How are you getting on? I have to wait 5 minutes before I retake the bike Oh right, because you’ve just docked one Yes, I’m very impatient Otherwise, each extra 30 minutes is charged at at £2 Sounds easy enough to me A whole load of terms and conditions which I’m going to accept insert my card and on my receipt there’s a five digit code which you must punch in over here the red light means it’s damaged like this one, so don’t use it Of course, you can go to the TFL website and for £3 you can apply for a special key and it deducts the money straight from your account This fellow is using the app on his phone You can also use it to find nearby docking stations but I’m old-school, I prefer to use the map Now be careful you dock it properly and the light goes green otherwise you’ll be charged extra This has now expired so I have to go to the machine again So I have to wait 5 minutes but this time I won’t be charged even though it still needs my card to check I’ve paid And we’re ready to rock again It even has gears, and a bell Off you go. On yer bike! You’re not allowed to ride on the pavement! but the bikes are on the pavement! You have to take them off the pavement and onto the road!
