The Barclays Cycle Hire Scheme is expanding: More than 2,000 new Boris bikes have been added and there are new docking points all over East London.

As of this morning, an additional 2,700 docking points have been added in Tower Hamlets, and in north Shoreditch, Hackney.

You can also cycle further west, as 600 new docking points have been provided at Westfield London shopping centre in Shepherds Bush.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said:

“Our wonderful blue bikes have changed the face of London and introduced a new form of public transport that has eased getting around our great city for thousands of Londoners and made the capital even more attractive to visitors. I am delighted to have kept my promise to provide a cycle hire scheme for the people of London and today we have made it even bigger and better than ever before.”
