  • I live work and cycle everyday in London and think the scheme is a complete waste of money. Bikes are not expensive. If someone wants to cycle they can buy a bike. The london authority has just released the charges and they are so high that it will kill the scheme. I suspect they are set so high to cover the likely huge number of stolen bikes.
