How to hire

Why not take a spin?

Santander Cycles is London's self-service bike-sharing scheme for short journeys. You can hire a bike from as little as £2 for the day. There's no need to book - just find your nearest docking station, hire a bike, go for a ride, then return it to any docking station. Visit TfL to find out more.

Tip: Once you’ve paid the £2 bike access fee, you get unlimited journeys of up to 30 minutes during the next 24 hours. Longer journeys cost £2 for each extra 30 minutes.
