The downside to this scheme is that bikes must be returned within 24 hours so give yourself enough time to get back to your nearest docking station. I always make sure my bike’s is well kept and returned in time to avoid a £300 fine!
Recently, I hired a Barclays Bike for the very first time ever and guess what? I only paid £2 for 24 hours. The bike felt a lot different to my regular bike though. I always thought the bike would be quite heavy, but it was quite comfortable to ride.
