More London cyclists on the streets

The famous ‘Boris’ bikes now sponsored by Santander (in London red) were hired a record amount in January 2017 compared to the same month in 2016.

Transport for London said its Santander Cycles were hired out a total of 638,491 times during January - more than 50,000 times more than the same month last year.

2016 was a record-breaking year (more than 10 million journeys) so it looks like 2017 will easily top that.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “I’m delighted that record numbers of Londoners are using our world-famous Santander Cycles to travel around the capital. Cycling helps to improve our health, air quality and congestion, and that’s why I’m investing record amounts to make it even safer and easier for all Londoners to take to two wheels.”
