Boris bikes to be expanded to West London

The London cycle hire scheme will be expand into new parts of the city following a first year of operation which have seen over six million journeys using the distinctive, blue-and-grey bikes.

Plans for the expansion were announced by London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, at an event before this weekend’s first year anniversary of the scheme, modelled on similar systems in Paris and elsewhere, and the biggest public cycling project in the UK.

The London version was launched amid gloomy predictions of possible indifference, mass vandalism and theft, and likely carnage as many thousands of inexperienced, helmet-less cyclists took to the capital’s busy streets.

In a similar fashion, Wiles Greenworld London’s leading green office supplies distributor that has been operating with distribution fleet that runs on alternative fuel has been a keen supporter of the bikes scheme. Keen to reduce the impact of travel on the environment the company has been operating a green travel policy for a number of years. The policy encourages all employees to walk, cycle or car share and entitles all employees to a free bike should they choose to cycle to and from work.
