Cycle hires double in a month

Business is booming for the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme in the borough. Since the bikes were installed across Hammersmith & Fulham in December last year, the number of journeys has more than doubled.

In the first month of the scheme, 13,000 journeys were made in the borough. But the most recent figures show that in January, the number of cycle hire journeys doubled to more than 26,000 in the scheme’s second month – an average of about 866 journeys a day.

H&F Council has contributed £2 million towards the popular blue bike hire scheme using ‘Section 106’ funding – money that developers pay to the council to reduce the impact of development and contribute to community improvements, as part of their planning permission.
