London Cycle Hire - Santander Bikes

Easy Riding

No worries about fitness levels or being a seasoned cyclist—Santander’s got you covered with their shiny fleet of e-bikes. They’re perfect if you’re not keen on tackling those pesky London hills. Just pop into any of the 800 stations across the city, grab a bike, and you’re good to go. And at just £3 for unlimited 30-minute rides in a day, it’s cheaper than a pint at the pub!

Flexible and Budget-Friendly

Whether you’re off to a cheeky brunch or exploring hidden street art, these bikes make getting around both fun and affordable. After the first 30 minutes, you can keep riding for a small extra charge, making it easy to weave through the city’s bustling streets and beautiful parks at your own pace.

Why You’ll Love It

Last year, Londoners and visitors alike clocked over 11.5 million rides. Why? Because it’s not just about getting from A to B; it’s about discovering new spots, staying fit, and doing your bit for the planet. Plus, with new stations popping up in cool areas like Southwark, you have more reasons to explore off the beaten path.

Riding with Santander Cycles is a breeze and it’s green, giving you all the feels of doing something good for Mother Earth. It’s a win-win: you stay active and cut down on carbon emissions. And with ongoing expansions, the network of bikes and docking stations is only getting better.
