Rent a cycle from any Barclays Cycle Hire docking station, return it to any Barclays Cycle Hire docking station: Use London Bike to find one of the 6000 cycles at the 20 docking stations closest to where you are.

All docks are shown based on TFL data - including size and availability.


Nearest Bikes:
